As Thou hast bless'd our various store,
A liberal portion to the poor,
In whom we breathe, and move, and live ;
Freely may we rejoice to give.

When all the worlds are Thine ?
Partakers of Thy grace;

Born in this vale of tears,

That leads our steps to heaven.
Their hymns of triumph raise,
Thou wilt not scorn our praise.
