Because I Have Been Given Much—My Favorite Hymn
Because I Have Been Given Much
Because I have been given much,
I too must give;
Because of thy great bounty Lord,
Each day I live;
I shall divide my gifts from thee
With every brother that I see
Who has the need of help from me.
Because I have been sheltered, fed
By thy good care;
I cannot see another’s lack and I not share;
My glowing fire, my loaf of bread,
my roof’s safe shelter overhead
That he too may be comforted.
My family recorded a series of beautiful scared music albums. I was living away, so I wasn’t part of the group. That’s why, with complete objectivity, I can say that this is my favorite rendition of this beautiful Christian hymn. I hope you love it, too!
