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.

My utmost will of direction every second. Had this prayer of not having a form of Godliness but progressively manifesting the power of Jesus thereof and this hymn came afterwards. Blessed be the name of Jesus!

I chose this hymn as one of them for my Mum's funeral last year. She loved it and knew it off by heart. Thanks for providing the lyrics today when I needed them once more!

Asked God for a hymn for my birthday today and this came to mind. Chose for my dedication hymn for the year. God journeyed through some serious thyroid health issues last year and I give Him all the glory and praise.
