"Consecrated, Lord to Thee"
We sang an old hymn this morning in our Home Bible Fellowship...and I was surprised that not many of our small group were familiar with this song...
"Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.
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.
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.
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.
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,
Every, Only, all for Thee."
Written by Frances R. Havergal, 1836-1879.
Do you know what it means to be "Consecrated, Lord, to Thee"?
