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