Take My Life


Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to thee.
Take my moments and my days.
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands and let them move,
Driven by your love.
Let my footsteps be
Beautiful for thee.

Jesus, I surrender.
As I bow before your throne,
I want to live for you alone.
Jesus, I surrender.
Take my life and let it be for you.

Take my will and make it thine.
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my thoughts, renew my mind.
Use it Lord for your delight.
Take my heart it is your own.
It shall be your throne.
Teach my voice to sing
Only for my King.

Jesus, I surrender…

Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At your feet, its treasure store.
Take my silver and my gold.
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my lips and let them be,
Filled with words from thee.
Take myself to be,
Ever, all for thee.

Jesus, I surrender…
