Contemporary Christian song from perhaps the early 1970s - To some He gave the gift of prophecy

I am looking for the title and artist of the following song and would like to obtain a recording if possible. I remember hearing it in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Here are the lyrics:

To some He gave the gift of prophecy,
To me He gave a song.
To His children, He gives the gift of love.
To share as they pass along.
Doubts and fear, they come from down below,
So when you way is dim.
Just look in the Book,
I'll tell you where to look: Romans ten, nine and ten.

Chorus:
If I live, well, praise the Lord.
If I die, well, praise the Lord.
If I live or die, my only cry will be,
Jesus in me, praise the Lord.

The love He gives lasts for eternity,
Cast all your cares on him.
He died on the cross to save you from sin,
And then He rose again.
The Christian life is more than a quality,
It's Jesus Christ the man.
It's saying Lord, I give myself to You.
It's saying, here I am.

Chorus repeat.

I first heard this when the Good News Circle from Judson College did it. Bob Laurent and Butch and company. The good old days, with eternal truth.

My wife and I have sung this song for years in our ministry.
The last chorus we sing,
The Christian Life is but a quality.
It is Jesus Christ Come in.
It is saying Lord I give my life to you.
It is saying here I am

Do you have any video posted anywhere of you two singing it? My husband is undergoing treatment for cancer and I want to hear it.

This song was sung, and I think written by Ray Hildebrand.
