Only for My King: the hymn

I knew my next book would be a devotional about serving and surrendering to God. As I prayed about the chapter topics, I found this hymn. It's a summary of serving and surrendering! Read it slowly and ask the Lord which area of your life you need to surrender to Him today.

Take my Life and Let it Be

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 at the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be 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
Take my silver and my gold not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect and use 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
Take my love my Lord I pour at Thy feet its treasure store
Take myself and I will be ever only all for Thee.

--Frances Ridley Havergal
