Good Words 1860
"I did this for Thee! What hast Thou done for Me?"

(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 mightst ransom'd be,
And quicken'd 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 wand'rings sad and lone.
I left it all for thee;
Hast thou left aught for Me?

I suffer'd much for thee,
More than thy tongue may tell,
Of bitterest agony,
To rescue thee from hell.
I suffer'd 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 suff'ring blent;
Bring thou thy worthless all;
Follow thy Saviour's call.
