What Can We Give ?
Guilty of sin, in the first degree,
Innocent blood, fell all over me, God's
Spotless lamb, left Heaven, came to be,
The supreme sacrifice to set men free
Carried a cruel cross up mount Calvary,
The spotless Lamb, came to die for me,
love That day, was an up hill climb,
Each step he took, had me on his mind
My sins had complete control over me, I
Had no power, to set myself free, I was
Headed for hell, sin had so blinded me,
Till Truth was nailed, to that old tree
Thank God for this man from Galilee,
Who bought a pardon for you for me,
A heavy price, it was not free, a
Greater sacrifice, has never been made
Marred beyond recognition, scourged,
Spat on, His flesh ripped away, yet not a
Word of defense, did he utter that day,
Pierced, nailed to a tree, for you, for me
What can we offer in return to Him ?
Surely there must be something, we can
Give, sacrificial lambs, no longer suffice,
Of gold and jewels he has no need
What could I possibly, offer a king
Who'd given himself, a Ransom for me ?
I fell to my knees, cried out "LORD"
Surely an offering to you, I must give
He spoke to me tenderly, said my Child
Keep thyself unspotted from the world,
Keep my commandments, watch and pray,
Implore Men to repent, from sin turn away.
