Take My Life . . .

We sang this beautiful hymn today at church. The words touched my heart so much that I wanted to share them here. May this be a blessing to you this Lord’s Day.

Take My Life and Let It Be Consecrated

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days –
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee,
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

Take my voice and let me sing
Always, only, for my King;
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee,
Filled with messages from Thee.

Take my silver and my gold –
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose,
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.

Take my love – my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee,
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Take my will and make it Thine –
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart – it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

The text of this hymn was written by Frances Ridley Havergal
The music was written by Henry A. Cesar Malan

Blessings,
