"I Did This For Thee! What Hast Thou Done For Me?"

I gave My life for thee,
My precious blood I shed,

 

(Motto placed under a picture of our Saviour in the study of a German Divine)

I gave My life for thee,                      
My precious blood I shed,                  
That thou might'st ransomed be,       
And quickend from the dead.
I gave My life for thee;
What hast thou given for Me?


I spent long years for thee
In weariness and woe,
That an eternity
Of joy thou mightest know.
I spent long years for thee;
Hast thou spent one for Me?


My Father's home of light
My rainbow-circled throne,
I left, for earthly night,
For wanderings sad and lone.
I left it all for thee?
Hast thou left aught for Me?


I suffered much for thee,
More than thy tongue may tell,
Of bitterest agony,
To rescue thee from hell.
I suffered much for thee;
What canst thou bear for Me?


And I have brought to thee,
Down from My home above,
Salvation full and free,
My pardon and My love.
Great gifts I brought to thee;
What hast thou brought to Me?


Oh, let thy life be given,
Thy years for Him be spent,
World-fetters all be riven,
And joy with suffering blent;
I gave Myself for thee:
Give thou thyself to Me!
