I Gave My Life For Thee

I gave My life for thee, My precious blood I shed, That thou might’st ransomed be, and quickened from the dead; I gave My life for thee- what hast thou given for Me?

My Father’s house of light, My glory-circled throne I left, For earthly night, for wanderings sad and lone; I left, I left it all for thee-hast thou left aught for Me?

I suffered much for thee, more than thy tongue can tell, Of bitt’rest agony, to rscue thee from hell: I’ve borne, I’ve borne it all for thee- what hast thou borne for Me?

And I have brought to thee, down from My home above, Salvation full and free, My pardon and My love; I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee-what hast thou brought to me?
