Take my life, and let it be

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 power as Thou shalt choose,
Every power 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,
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,
Ever, only, all for Thee.

I learnt this song when I was a little girl. I was preparing a message on submission in the church and it kept ringing in my spirit. The song says it all. Most of the time we sing only the first stanza but I think we have to learn all the verses and sing all together. Thanks for providing the lyrics.

I heard this hymn today after a long time. It reminds me of the time we sang it at church when years ago, when I just got saved. This song helps me to recommit myself to serving the Lord of glory. Praise God!

Thank you for reminding me of this song and its wordings, cause it always comes to my memory since I knew it as far back as elementary school days. God be praised and God bless you in keeping a world of love and peace, harmony and brotherhood.

When it seems the whole world was crumbling down on my shoulders, rejected, forsaken, humulated and tormented...... God brought this song to my heart as a light to my deepest darkness.

What a good song to start a new year by re- dedicating oneself to God. It reminds me to continually serve God for everything I have belongs to Almighty God. It is a great thing to serve Jesus and walk in God's marvelous light. God bless.

This song is so, so, so comforting to worship God and humbly asked Him to completely and totally own me (though He already does), which is also a reminder to myself that He already does.
