What shall I give Thee, Master

1
What shall I give Thee, Master?
  Thou who didst die for me.
Shall I give less of what I possess,
  Or shall I give all to Thee?
  Jesus, my Lord and Savior;
  Thou hast giv’n all for me;
Thou didst leave Thy home above
  To die on Calvary.
What shall I give Thee, Master?
  Thou hast giv’n all for me;
Not just a part or half of my heart,
    I will give all to Thee.
2
What shall I give Thee, Master?
  Thou hast redeemed my soul;
My gift is small but it is my all—
  Surrendered to Thy control.
3
What shall I give Thee, Master?
  Giver of gifts divine!
I will not hold time, talents or gold—
  For everything shall be Thine.

Homer Grimes was my pastor at Scott Memorial Baptist Church in San Diego, CA. I was 7 or 8 years old. When he left, Tim LaHaye became the pastor, I remember those days so long ago, how Pastor Grimes could make that piano rock...

I feel blessed for having found this hymn. One that I always sang in Spanish during my youth, but I wanted to learn in English. Thank you!

I found Christ as my Savior, under the ministry of Rev. Homer Grimes, over 60 years ago. How often he played this hymn. It came to mean much to him as it led me to make the decision he calls us to, and I have been in God's service ever since.

Homer Grimes was my pastor at Scott Memorial Baptist Church in San Diego, CA. I was 13 years old when I moved there. When he left, Tim LaHaye became the pastor,

and Homer Grimes' songs continued to be sung. Such wonderful, timeless songs that reach the heart and soul.

I thought of this hymn this morning, as something I'd like to sing for our 5th Sunday service tonight, and am so glad to have found it. I surely have it in a hymnal somewhere, but this was a real answer to prayer.

I am a Jamaican. When I was a child I my father would sing this song on Sabbath. It was his favorite song. I am looking for this song to sing at Church one Sabbath. Thank you for posting.

God has been so good and faithful to me and my family. And what have I given Him in return? May God, by His grace use the remaining useful years of my life for His service.

It made me cry when I heard this song. It reminds me of my childhood where in our household was surrounded with music. My sisters used to sing this song especially my eldest sister who is now 69 years old, this is her favorite song. I am now practicing this song as I want to sing it in our church this coming Sabbath. Thank you for posting "What shall I give thee Master. :)

This reminds me of a beautiful white haired lady who had a slight croak in her voice and she used to stand up and sing this song on the platform at our mission many years ago. Oh how I miss these wonderful ladies.

This is one of my favorites from my childhood days at my grandmother's church.

"What shall I give Thee, Master?

Thou Who didst die for me!

How can I give less than give of my best,

When Thou hast given all to me!

What shall I give Thee, Master?

Thou Who didst die for me!

How can I give less than all of my best,

I must give all to Thee!"
