TAKE my life, and let it be

Consecrated, Lord, to Thee:

Take my moments and my days,

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.

Take my voice, and let me sing

Always, only, for my King:

Take my lips, and let them be

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.

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,

Take my love; my Lord, I pour

At Thy feet its treasure store;

Take myself, and I will be

Ever, only, all, for Thee.

Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879)
