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 will 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 myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.
