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 hymn really inspires in me the urge to serve God with everything I have. When I lost my job and sung this hymn, I discovered I can still work for God (as an unpaid volunteer) and let Him take care of my needs which He has done.

This morning my husband and I sang this together, and, for the first time in a while, I sang it with complete rest and full meaning in my heart. I'm so grateful to the Holy Spirit this day.

Indeed, this hymn is a constant reminder to me that my life is not my own but a privilege I received from God.

Edifying song. We sang verse 3 repeated in the church today.

This song never made sense when we sang it at school. But this morning, more than 20 years later it speaks to my heart and informs the attitude I need to adopt in service to my Lord and King. Blessed be the Lord God Almighty who has loved us with an everlasting love. There is none beside Him...He alone is King and He is worthy of all our praise. Hallelujah!

I was thinking and this song this morning, it revived me and it also reminds me of my service to the kingdom of God.

Oh! What a wonderful lyrics, it is an eye opener. I'm nothing without You oh my God....

Let me be an instrument in Your vineyard and in the life of people in Jesus' mighty name.. I'm nothing without You the lover of my soul.

I was meditating on Matthew 10:39 this morning:

"Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it."

Then this precious hymn came to mind. What a beautiful expression of a fully surrendered heart! I pray that my life will be found in You, Father God. Take my life and let it be, consecrated Lord to Thee!
