“Take My Life & Let It Be” by Frances R. Havergal, 1874
- Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my hands and let them move
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.
- Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee;
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
- Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise;
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.
- 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.
- Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.
This is my prayer tonight. Tomorrow, 15 of us set out to Copperhill, Tennessee and the surrounding Appalachian Mountain Area to work with TEAMeffort. Please keep us in your prayers, as well as the people we will encounter. Every night I hope to have a couple teens post on our Cove Parents blog right here… http://coveparents.wordpress.com/ to keep everyone at home posted on what we are up to this week. Have a blessed one everyone!
