The music of this week, Take my Life and let it Be by Frances R. Havergal (Music by Music by: Louis J.F. Herold; and Arrangement by George Kingsley), is a hymn of self-consecration to Christ and it is published in 1043 hymnals. Each verse of this hymn places emphasis on dedicating our whole selves to God, or our commitment to serve Him.
1. Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to thee.
Take my moments and my days;
Let them flow in endless praise,
Let them flow in endless praise.
2. 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,
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,
Filled with messages from thee.
4. Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
Every power as thou shalt choose,
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,
It shall be thy royal throne.
6. Take my love; my Lord, I pour
Aat thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for thee,
Ever, only, all for thee.
