Because I have been given much, I too must give.
Because of thy great bounty, Lord, each day I live.
I shall divide my gifts from thee with
every brother that I see,
who has the need of help from me.
Because I have been sheltered, fed by thy good care…
I cannot see another's lack, and I not share-
my glowing fire, my loaf of bread, my
roof's safe shelter over head,
that he too may be comforted.
Because I have been blessed by thy great love dear Lord,
I'll share thy love again according to thy word.
I shall give love to those in need.
I'll show that love by word and deed,
then, shall my thanks be thanks indeed.
