True Love

Happy Friday! I've been waiting to share something
with you that speaks everything my heart feels!  Oh
how I wish that I had written this, but it's actually a
hymn that was written by a woman named Francis
Ridley Havergal, in 1873.  One night she had a dramatic 
experience which stirred her to complete surrender
to God and she wrote these words.  Soak them in...
does your heart long to give every part to Him?  It's
true love to be surrendered to your Creator and
longing to follow Him with every breath you take!



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 hands, and let them move at the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee.

Take my voice and let me sing, always only for my King.
Take my lips and let them be, filled with messages from Thee.

Take my silver and my gold, not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use every power as Thou shalt choose.

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,
