Expository Songs from II Corinthians 9

II Corinthians 9:7

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Robert Murray used this verse as the starting point for his 1898 hymn “Lord, Thou Lov’st the Cheerful Giver”:

Lord, thou lov’st the cheerful giver,
who with open heart and hand
blesses freely, as a river
that refreshes all the land.
Grant us then the grace of giving
with a spirit large and free,
that our life and all our living,
we may consecrate to thee.
