Take My Life and Let It Be

Melody - "Patmos", William H. Havergal, 1869

Frances R. Havergal, 1874

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
|: 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. :|

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. :|

4. Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect and use
|: Ev'ry pow'r 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. :|

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. :|
