You can only give what you have

I wish to give you my beauty but have it not, O Lord,
so you give me beauty that I may give it back to you

I wish to give you my courage but have it not, O Lord,
so you give me courage that I may give it back to you

I wish to give you my love but have it not, O Lord,
so you give me love that I may give it back to you

I wish to give you emptiness but have it not, O Lord,
so you give me emptiness that I may give it back to you
