about

Helen Humes (1945)

lyrics

Old Rev was in the pulpit
His face was all a glow
Until he spied collections
On the table below
The plates were almost empty
He couldn’t stand the shock
So this is what he shouted
That made the whole church rock

Yes It’s better to give than to receive…
Don’t you know that he that gives
Up above some day shall live
It’s better to give than to receive

Now I’ve been sacrificing
Helping you see the light
But look at this collection
I ain’t been treated right
So get it up and drop it in
We’re on the brink of ruin
Let’s dig down deep I’m waiting
And I’ve got more time in brewin’

(Chorus)

Can’t I help you see the light?
Everything’s gonna be alright!
It’s better to give than to receive

If you can’t share your gold
How can I help save your soul?
It’s better to give…
