Version:

When we offer You our lives
Ev'ry sacrifice You've given first
You've given first
And when we make the choice
To serve attending others' needs
You served us first
You served us first
There is nothing we can do
That You've not done for us
Father You're the source of all that's love

So we love to give because You gave so much
Now we live to love because You first loved us
So we love to give because You gave so much
Now we live to love because You first loved us
You love us first

When we walk in faithfulness
Keeping covenant
You're faithful first faithful first
When we run to win the prize
To reach the finish line
You run it first
You've won it first
Ev'ry path we suffer on
You have walked before
Ev'ry victory yet won is Yours
