1 Take thou our minds, dear Lord, we humbly pray;
give us the mind of Christ each passing day;
teach us to know the truth that sets us free;
grant us in all our thoughts to honor thee.
2 Take thou our hearts, O Christ, they are thine own;
come thou within our souls and claim thy throne;
help us to shed abroad thy deathless love;
use us to make the earth like heaven above.
3 Take thou our wills, Most High! Hold thou full sway;
have in our inmost souls Thy perfect way;
guard thou each sacred hour from selfish ease;
guide thou our ordered lives as thou dost please.
4 Take thou ourselves, O Lord, heart, mind, and will;
through our surrendered souls thy plans fulfill.
We yield ourselves to thee - time, talents, all;
we hear, and henceforth heed thy sov'reign call.
