Take my Life and let it Be

Verse 1:
Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord to Thee;
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love,
At the impulse of Thy love.

Verse 2:
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee:
Take my voice and let me sing
Always–only–for my King,
Always–only–for my King.

Verse 3:
Take my lips and let them be
Fill’d with messages from Thee:
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold,
Not a mite would I withhold.

Verse 4:
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise:
Take my intellect and use
Ev’ry pow’r as Thou shalt choose,
Ev’ry pow’r as Thou shalt choose.

Verse 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.

Verse 6:
Take my love, my God, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure-store:
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee,
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Frances R. Havergal/C.H.A. Malan
