What can I offer?

What can I offer the Lord for all he has done for me?
(Psalm 116:12; NLT).

I offer you my weak, frail flesh,
Stripped of all the health and strength of youth.
It’s yours already, Lord, for you conceived it,
Yet I have nothing else to give, in truth.

I offer you my damaged mind,
Stripped of all my hopes of paradise.
It’s yours already, Lord, for you ordained it,
But I have nothing else to sacrifice.

I offer you my small, hard heart,
Stripped of all my faith, and peace, and trust.
It’s yours already, Lord, for you assigned it,
Yet I have nothing else to yield, but dust.

I offer you my sinful life,
Stripped of all grace, though you dwell in my soul.
It’s yours already, Lord, for I’m your temple,
But you are the only part of me that’s whole.

Offer every part of yourself to him
(Romans 6:13; NIV).

1. Let’s live in peace
With everyone,

2. And offer help
To those who fall.

3. Let’s spread our faith
Throughout the world,

4. And dwell in love
With one and all.
