The Gift of Thanks – Charles Wesley

“Hail, holy, heaven-ascended Child,

Who God and man has reconciled

Whom angels bow before!

Whatever I have of good to give, to you,

from whom I first receive,

I thankfully restore.

To you, my heart I open wide.

The myrhh of passions mortified

The incense sweet of humble prayer,

I now your prostrate worshipper

with joy present to you.”

   Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
