1 Take, oh, take me, Holy Father!
Hear my supplicating prayer;
Take and use me as Thy vessel,
Take, oh, take me to Thy care.
2 Break me, oh, Thou loving Father!
Though Thy breaking cost me pain;
Though Thou triest me with fire
I will magnify Thy name.
3 Make me as Thou wilt, O Father!
Melt this stubborn heart of mine;
Make me like my Lord and Saviour,
Full of love and life divine.
4 Take me, break me, make me, Father!
Unto Thee I all resign!
By Thy loving grace uphold me,
Make me ever wholly Thine.Source: The Sunday School Hymnal: with offices of devotion #144
