Take my life, and let it be

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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.
5
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.
6
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.

This is not just a song but a lifestyle that everyone that sees him/her self as a sojourner here must yearn and work towards. Thank God for His grace upon the composer and the users.

I've been singing this song the whole week as I offer my whole being to be used of God. Its very appropriate as one surrenders to God. Praise be to God.

This wonderful song came into my thoughts 5:55 am going this morning as I laid in bed mediating on the LORD.

It really blessed me and I felt a deep sense of peace and contentment that came over me...hallelujah!

Praise be to God! The LOVER of my soul.

Oh, Africa! Thank you for loving Him and desiring to serve Him and giving Him you life.

The Lord brought this song to mind during devotions and I looked it up because I couldn't remember all the words. Wonderful words of dedication. I pray each of them for myself.

Then I began to read the comments - so many from Africa! I go to Malawi in a few weeks. I pray there will be such love and consecration to God and the Lord Jesus there as well.
