Take My Life

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
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.

Come Saviour Jesus

Come, Saviour, Jesus from above

Come, Saviour, Jesus from above!
Assist me with Thy heavenly grace;
Empty my heart of earthly love,
And for Thyself prepare the place.

O let Thy sacred presence fill,
And set my longing spirit free,
Which pants to have no other will,
But day and night to feast on Thee.

While in this region here below,
No other good will I pursue;
I’ll bid this world of noise and show,
With all its glittering snares, adieu!

That path with humble speed I’ll seek,
In which my Saviour’s footsteps shine;
Nor will I hear, nor will I speak,
Of any other love but Thine.

Henceforth may no profane delight
Divide this consecrated soul;
Possess it Thou, who hast the right,
As Lord and Master of the whole.

Wealth, honour, pleasure, and what else
This short-enduring world can give,
Tempt as ye will, my soul repels,
To Christ alone resolved to live.

Thee I can love, and Thee alone,
With pure delight and inward bliss:
To know Thou tak’st me for Thine own,
O what a happiness is this!

Nothing on earth do I desire
But Thy pure love within my breast:
This, only this, will I require,
And freely give up all the rest.

Antoinette Bourignon, tr. John Wesley


In Full and Glad Surrender

In full and glad surrender

In full and glad surrender
I give myself to Thee;
Thine utterly, and only,
And evermore to be.

O Son of God, who lov’st me,
I will be Thine alone;
And all I have, and all I am,
Shall henceforth be Thine own.

Reign over me, Lord Jesus;
O make my heart Thy throne:
It shall be Thine, my Saviour,
It shall be Thine alone.

O come and reign, Lord Jesus,
Rule over everything;
And keep me always loyal
And true to Thee, my King.

F. R. Havergal



Humble thyself to walk with God

If thou would’st have the dear Saviour from heaven
Walk by thy side from the morn till the even,
There is a rule that each day you must follow,
Humble thyself to walk with God.

Humble thyself and the Lord will draw near thee,
Humble thyself and His presence shall cheer thee;
He will not walk with the proud or the scornful,
Humble thyself to walk with God.

Just as the Lord in the world’s early ages
Walked and communed with the prophets and sages,
He will come now if you meet the conditions,
Humble thyself to walk with God.

Just as the stream finds a bed that is lowly,
So Jesus walks with the pure and the holy;
Cast out thy pride, and in heartfelt contrition,
Humble thyself to walk with God.
