Many Gifts

Oh, the Lord has many gifts child
And He longs to pour them out.
They are yours if you’ll receive them;
Freely use them, in His name.

Gifts of healing; gifts of mercy;
Gifts to touch the heart and mind;
He will give you with full measure
For His purpose and His plan.

Gifts of teaching; gifts of music;
Gifts to speak with God and man.
Many gifts from just one Spirit
For the service of one Lord.

All these gifts and more beside them
Are still useless without love.
Love that makes into one body
All He calls to be His own.

For His glory; for His kingdom;
To encourage; to give strength.
Use the gifts that He will give you
Knowing He will be your guide.
