Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 I clasp the hand of love divine,
I claim the gracious promise mine,
And this eternal countersign,
"I take"—"He undertakes."

Refrain:
I take Thee, blessèd Lord,
I give myself to Thee;
And Thou, according to Thy word,
Dost undertake for me.

2 I take salvation full and free,
Thro’ Him who gave His life for me,
He undertakes my all to be,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]

3 I take Him as my holiness,
My spirit’s spotless, heavenly dress,
I take the Lord, my righteousness,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]

4 I take the promised Holy Ghost,
I take the power of Pentecost,
To fill me to the uttermost,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]

5 I take Him for this mortal frame,
I take my healing thro’ His name,
And all His risen life I claim,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]

6 I simply take Him at His word,
I praise Him that my prayer is heard,
And claim my answer from the Lord,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]
