I Want to Give the Lord My Tenth

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


1. I want to give the Lord my tenth,

For ev’ry time I do

It makes me think of all the gifts

He gives to me and you.

2. He gives us life, this lovely world.

And though my tenth seems small,

It shows my faith and gratitude

To him, the Lord of all.
