"Take my life..."

We generally sing more modern worship songs at our church, but we do try to slip a hymn in 1-2 times a month. This past week we sang, "Take my life and Let it Be." What a wonderful hymn, and what a wonderful reminder to turn ourselves over - every last piece - to the Giver of all Good Things.

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship." Romans 12:1

Take my life and let it be, consecrated, Lord, to Thee
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
Take my voice and let me sing, always, only for my King.

Take my lips and let them be filled with messages from Thee

Take my silver and my gold, not a mite would I withhold.

Take my moments and my days, let them flow in endless praise
Take my intellect and use every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.

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.

Take my love, my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure store
Take myself and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.
