Hymn of the Month

Here is our hymn for the month of February

Take My Life and Let It Be

Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of Thy love,
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.
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.
Not a mite would I withhold.

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.
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Written by Frances R. Havergal (1836-1879)

I have been so encouraged every morning since we have begun to sing this hymn.  It just reminds me how much our life does belong to Him.  May we give ourselves to Him each day and live our life to His honour and glory!

  1. I had forgotten about how meaningful this hymn really is. It has been wonderful to sing these great hymns with the children. Before we were mainly singing children's songs, like Only a Boy Named David, Read Your Bible, Pray Every Day, and the Wise Man and so on, all are wonderful songs for children, but hymns have so much meaning. 🙂 Of course we still do sing the other songs, but we just have more variety now. 🙂

I love hearing from you!!
