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.

In this time of powerlessness about world and national events, I can sing this hymn knowing that I have the power of God in my being to follow His direction and that I can trust His sovereign goodness to guide me and keep me in deep fellowship with Him. How remarkable.

I was about ending my prayer when 'take my life and let it be' came to heart, so I decided to look up the remaining stanzas... and every single stanza just SPELLS out my heart cry.

Thank you Holy Spirit 💕

I too had this song come to my remembrance this morning after reading the Bible. Father, use all of me and all I have to glorify you.

I just finished praying when this ding came to my mind and I so wanted to sing it that I searched for the lyrics. God bless the composer, it is so refreshing. Thank you Holy Spirit.
