Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless 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.
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 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.
(Take My Life & Let It Be by Frances R. Havergal, 1874.)
Lord, make this hymn the cry of my heart.
Take my will, my hands and feet, my voice, my life, all of me; use me to glorify you.
My life is not my own. Remind me that I am apart of something so much bigger than myself – the furtherance of your gospel & your kingdom.
Take my sin & throw it far from me. Make it distasteful, disgusting to me.
I pray that you would cause my heart to so want & desire & worship you above all else.
Thank you for your goodness & grace towards me Lord, for I do not deserve it.
I pray that you would allow me to give your love & grace to those that don’t deserve it either. Fill my heart with overwhelming, genuine love for those around me. Use my hands & feet to serve them & care for them more than I care for myself.
