For SATB Choir and Keyboard - a lovely setting of the tune Almsgiving by John Bacchus Dykes with a text by Christopher Wordsworth.  Not too difficult with a wonderful descant on the last verse.  A great choice for Pentecost with a text that would also work for other days.  Learning tracks are available and accessible from the link on the last page of the downloaded .pdf.


O Lord of heaven and earth and sea,
To thee all praise and glory be;
How shall we show our love to thee,
Who givest all?

Thou didst not spare thine only Son,
But gav'st him for a world undone,
And freely, with that Blessed One,
Thou givest all.

Thou giv'st the Spirit's blessed dower,
Spirit of life and love and power,
And dost his sevenfold graces shower
Upon us all.

For souls redeemed, for sins forgiven,
For means of grace and hopes of heaven,
Father, what can to thee be given,
Who givest all?

To thee from whom we all derive
Our life, our gifts, our power to give:
O may we ever with the live,
Who givest all!
