An Old Hymn.

One of my very favorite hymns. I used to love singing this song in church. It says, in a way far more beautiful than I myself could do, what I choose each day to give to my God. You'll want to pause the music at the side of this blog, and watch this video. Listen. Close your eyes. Think about the words.

Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee.

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 silver and my gold - not a mite would I withhold.

Take my moments and my days - let them flow in ceaseless praise.

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 self and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.
