675. I Gave My Life for Thee

1 I gave My life for thee;
My precious blood I shed,
That thou might ransomed be,
And quickened from the dead.
I gave, I gave My life for thee.
What hast thou giv'n for Me?
I gave, I gave My life for thee.
What hast thou giv'n for Me?

2 My Father's house of light,
My glory-circled throne,
I left for earthly night,
For wand'rings sad and lone;
I left, I left it all for thee,
Hast thou left aught for Me?
I left, I left it all for thee,
Hast thou left aught for Me?

3 I suffered much for thee,
More than thy tongue can tell,
Of bitt'rest agony,
To rescue thee from hell.
I've borne, I've borne it all for thee.
What hast thou borne for Me?
I've borne, I've borne it all for thee.
What hast thou borne for Me?

4 And I have bro't 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 bro't to Me?
I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee.
What hast thou bro't to Me?
