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.

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!

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.
