A Hymn For Meditation

Take My Life and Let It Be          

Take my life, that I may 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 love; my Lord, I pour
At thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for thee.

  • Life, time, body, talents, heart. What can we hold back from Jesus and use in a secular way?
  • We are busy people. How can we possibly let all our time be used to praise Christ?
  • The hardest possible thing is to speak only for Christ. What will you not say if you are speaking for Christ? When will you be silent, because of Christ, and when will you speak up, if Christ is behind all your words?
  • If you love Christ above all else, how does that change the way you spend your money? How does that change the way you rear your children? How does that change your attitude toward people who disagree with you?
