1 Take my life, and let it be

Consecrated, Lord, to thee;

Take my moments and my days,

Let them flow in ceaseless 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.

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.

4 Take my silver and my gold,

Not a mite would I withhold;

Take my intellect, and use

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.

6 Take my love; my Lord, I pour

At thy feet its treasure-store;

Take thyself, and I will be

Ever, only, all for thee.
