226. Take My Life

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

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.

4 Take my love; my Lord, I pour
at your feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
yours for all eternity.
