610. Take My Life That It May Be

1 Take my life that it may be
all you purpose, Lord, for me.
Take my moments and my days;
let them sing your ceaseless praise,
let them sing your ceaseless praise.

2 Take my hands and let them move
at the impulse of your love.
Take my feet and lead their way;
never let them go astray,
never let them go astray.

3 Take my voice and let me sing
always, only, for my King.
Take my lips and keep them true,
filled with messages from you,
filled with messages from you.

4 Take my life, O Lord, renew,
consecrate my heart to you.
Take my self, and I will be
yours for all eternity,
yours for all eternity.
