Many gifts to us are granted, giv'n in trust thru God's great grace;
Seeds of good in us implanted, to be shared with ev'ry race.
There are many ways of serving, but the same Lord watches all;
May we find our way of serving, answer gladly Christ's dear call!

Give us wisdom, give us courage, give us faith to follow thru;
Help us, Lord, to use our talents, be sincere in all we do.
May we cheerful be in sharing, overcoming ill with good;
Help us, Lord, to be more caring, showing love as Christians should.

    ending, after vs. 2:
How great are God's riches! To Him be the glory forever! Amen.
