These lyrics are varied in hymnals. Please refer to the sheet music.
1. Take my life and let it be Consecrated, Lord, to Thee. Take my hands and let them move At the impulse of Thy love, At the impulse of Thy love.
2. Take my feet and let them be Swift and beautiful for Thee. Take my voice and let me sing, Always, only for my King, Always, only for my King.
3. Take my lips and let them be Filled with messages from Thee. Take my silver and my gold, Not a mite would I withhold, Not a mite would I withhold.
4. Take my love, my Lord, I pour At Thy feet its treasure store. Take myself and I will be Ever, only, all for Thee, Ever, only, all for Thee.
Additional stanzas:
5. Take my intellect and use Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose. Take my moments and my days, Let them flow in endless praise.
6. 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.
