In reading a friend’s e-mail, I was reminded of a sweet hymn, by Frances R. Havergal. Although I’ve sung it many times, I don’t think I’ve meditated on the words much:
Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
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 love, my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure-store.
Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.
It’s all yours, Lord, all yours.
