With what my God can I your Love repay,
Since by your Love, to Love at all is known?
For half your Love I’d give the world away
Yet may I pay for Love with Love your own?
What have I, then, that I have not by loan?
Let none deny my dire poverty
Lest in my heart I place myself enthroned
Forgoing You as True necessity.
So now I give what you first gave to me.
To pay my boundless debt of your pure Love
A life of endless generosity
While trusting still in Strength that’s from above.
I give in thanks what I received from You
So in my thanks my debt I this renew.
