1 Take our lives, and let them be
one in Christ eternally,
take our moments and our days
let them flow in ceaseless praise.

2 Take our hands, and let them move
at the impulse of your love;
take our feet, and let them run
with the news of victory won.

3 Take our voices, let us sing
always, only, for our King;
take our lips, let them proclaim
all the wonder of your name.

4 Take our wealth all we possess,
make us rich in holiness;
take our minds that we may use
every power as you shall choose.

5 Take our motives and our will,
all your purpose to fulfil;
take our hearts they are your own,
and shall be your royal throne.

6 Take our love O Lord, we pour
at your feet its treasure store;
take ourselves that we may be
yours for all eternity.

Version by Michael Perry (1942 - 1996) (Pseudonym Word and Music) of the hymn Take my life and let it be Frances R Havergal (1836 - 1879)
