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 was Just making a consecration prayer to my Savior Jesus Christ when the first verse of this hymn ran through my mind. , so I looked it up. These verses should be the prayer of every believer!

My hearts payer for the week is spelled out here in these lyrics. It is amazing to see God at work all around the world uniting His children in praise of Him! I pray for you as well brothers and sisters that we may offer ourselves as a living sacrifice to our Lord and Savior. Praise God and may be be glorified and magnified!

Deeply blessed by these lyrics and the eternal nature given to Gods children... to know Him and give ourselves to Him. He is faithful to answer every heartfelt cry and His tender mercies are clearly seen in all the comments below. We have one Spirit and one mind and one hope, in Christ, and He is calling us to be unified by His working power in us. Let God be true!! Come Lord Jesus Come!

The Lord brought the lyrics of this hymn to my mind as I was praying this morning. I felt compelled to find all the words. Once I’d found them, I had to sing them. And once I sang these God-inspired words, I had to pray them! The intimacy with my Lord that followed was breathtaking and humbling. Then I saw the comments from this week alone. I believe that God is up to something and He wants us to remember our commitment to Him especially when things seem out of control. God is ALWAYS in control. He is our Rock!! To God be the glory!!!

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.
