Take My Life and Let It Be – Sunday Song

A beautiful song of offering. The words were written by Frances A. Havergal in 1874. In the hymnals I have, the number of verses varies and the arrangement of the phrases within the verses also varies. I prefer this arrangement of the verses as it appears in the Celebrating Grace hymnal.

Take My Life and Let It Be
Take my life and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of Thy love,
At the impulse of Thy love.

Take my feet, and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee;
Take my voice, and let me sing always, only for my King,
Always, only, for my King.

Take my silver and my gold; not a mite would I withhold;
Take my moments and my days, let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

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,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

Take my love, my Lord, I pour — at Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself and I will be ever, only, all for Thee,
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Words: Frances R. Havergal, 1874; Music: Henri A. C. Milan,; harm. Lowell Mason
