I would give my life to save yours

My try is

Ich würde mein Leben geben, deinen sparen

    You can't say sparen here.

    "Ich gäbe mein Leben (hin), um deines zu retten/bewahren."

    Hingeben
    is OK, it's a bit more declamatory.
    Ich würde geben is OK, too. But K II carries more weight (especially with hingeben and bewahren).
