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.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. ”

This is a hymn of dedication and personal devotion to God.

It is one hymn that never fails to hit target.

The one that sings a hymn, prays twice.

"Take my voice and let me sing, ever, only for my King"

Really encouraging to hear the same Echoes of desire to surrender when our strength fails.. in all these comments across the globe! Praise God Indeed ❤️

I was overtaken by an intense temptation.. one that includes a proposal for marriage, the thoughts ever so tumultuous.. this song is a healing balm for me in my weakness.. Jesus taught us to be the best looser.. the only way to win is to loose it all.. Abba take my will, my selfish desires and my sense of self.. take these thorns and use it for your glory Lord.. thank you for your never ending mercies.. and promise to be with us and for us and in us.. we are no one and have no where to go apart from you.. do not lead us to temptation dear Lord.. deliver us.. into your Safe Embrace where we truly belong.. love you Lord!
