Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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.
