502. Take my life, Lord, let it be

1 Take my life, Lord, let it be
consecrated, glad, and free;
take my moments and my days,
let them flow in ceaseless praise.

2 Take my hands, and let them move
at the impulse of your love;
take my feet, that I may run
bearing news of Christ your Son.

3 Take my voice, and let me sing
always, only, for my King;
take my intellect and use
every power as you shall choose.

4 Take my will -- your will be done,
may my will and yours be one;
take my heart -- it is your own,
it shall be your royal throne.

5 Take my love -- my Lord, I pour
at your feet its treasure-store;
take myself, and I will be
all for you, eternally.
