1 I clasp the hand of love divine,
I claim the gracious promise mine,
And this eternal countersign,
"I take"—"He undertakes."

I take Thee, blessèd Lord,
I give myself to Thee;
And Thou, according to Thy word,
Dost undertake for me.

2 I take salvation full and free,
Thro’ Him who gave His life for me,
He undertakes my all to be,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]

3 I take Him as my holiness,
My spirit’s spotless, heavenly dress,
I take the Lord, my righteousness,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]

4 I take the promised Holy Ghost,
I take the power of Pentecost,
To fill me to the uttermost,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]

5 I take Him for this mortal frame,
I take my healing thro’ His name,
And all His risen life I claim,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]

6 I simply take Him at His word,
I praise Him that my prayer is heard,
And claim my answer from the Lord,
"I take"—"He undertakes." [Refrain]
