TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE CONSECRATED LORD, TO THEE
TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE....
My darling husband compiled a book about Christians who were set on fire by God in the past, entitled "A Life Well Spent". He is in the process of putting it on a CD. He read a few of the chapters to me today and one of the persons was Frances Havergal who wrote among other hymns "Take My Life and Let it Be" in 1874. It was a hymn I remember fondly from my childhood in the Episcopal church. Both Joe and I were moved to tears while he read the words to her song, so we wanted to share it with you with our love and blessings.
Here are two scriptures that fit well with being consecrated unto God... It means being set apart from the world, and humbly laying down everything you are, have, and hope to be at the feet of Jesus. It is a holy time of dying to self and all that self wants and desires for exchange for all that God wants and desires of us. God so desires relationship with us and He wants to be #1 in our lives. Above all else, before relationships, family, fame, fortune, position, ambitions, our own earthly self centered dreams and visions etc. He has good plans for our lives, He wants us to be his daughters and sons with full access to His unimaginable blessings and heavenly gifts awaiting us from His Royal Kingdom. All we need to do is to seek Him first and foremost and totally surrender to His will and His ways and all these things will be added unto us.
Joshua 3:5Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.” – Romans 12:1,2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE LYRICS FRANCES HAVERGAL 1847
TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE LYRICS
Take my life and let it be Consecrated, Lord, to Thee. *Take my moments and my days, Let them flow in endless 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 pow’r 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.
*Some hymnals insert this couplet after silver and gold.
