599a. Take my life, and let it be

1 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.

ttake 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,
nothing, Lord, would I withhold.

Take my intellect, and use
every power 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.
