‘What shall I render to my God’


1. What shall I render to my God
For all his mercy’s store?
I’ll take the gifts he hath bestowed
And humbly ask for more.

2. The sacred cup of saving grace
I will with thanks receive,
And all his promise embrace
And to his glory live.

3. My vows I will to his great name
Before his people pay,
And all I have, and all I am,
Upon his alter lay.

4. Thy hands created me, thy hands
From sin have set me free;
The mercy that hath loosed my bands
Hath bound me fast to thee.

5. The God of all-redeeming grace,
My God, I will proclaim,
Offer the sacrifice of praise,
And call upon his name.

Charles Wesley (1707-88)
