I Gave My Life for Thee


   C		   F
I gave My life for thee;
    C	     G7      C     
My precious blood I shed,
		          F
That thou mightíst ransomed be
    C	     G7	       C
And quickened from the dead.
   G7		  C
I gave, I gave My life for thee;
      G7		C
What hast thou givín for Me?
   G7		  C
I gave, I gave My life for thee;
      G7		 C
What hast thou givín for Me?

My Fatherís house of light,
My glory-circled throne;
I left for earthly night,
For wandírings 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 bitterest agony,
To rescue thee from hell.
Iíve born, Iíve born it all for thee;
What hast thou born for Me?
Iíve born, Iíve born it all for thee;
What hast thou born 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?
I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee;
What hast thou brought to Me?
