More Than I Can Give

“More Than I Can Give,” New Era, Nov. 1993, 10–11

In Tune:

More Than I Can Give


1. When I see someone who is in need

Whom I can comfort, clothe, or even feed

I realize how much I have, and I know it’s given to me

To relieve the suff’ring that I see.


2. So I give my substance to the poor

To pay my debt, but then I’m given more;

And so I never can repay the One who has helped me so to live,

But I can show love in how I give.



And when I serve others with love

I am uplifted and filled with peace;

It seems that I’m the one who receives;

I’m given strength that comes from above.

(See Mosiah 4:19–21.)
