I Am Yours (Take My Life)

Today, we’ll sing an old hymn whose words will be reiterated by a new chorus.  It’s a really a prayer that we’ll sing together where we submit – and commit – all that we are to God.

The hymn is “Take My Life, and Let It Be”, written in 1874 by Frances Havergal.  The chorus is contemporary, written in 2007 by Michael Neale.

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated Lord to Thee
Take my moments and my days
Let them flow in ceaseless praise
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
Swift and beautiful for Thee

I am Yours set apart for You
I am Yours hungry for Your truth
Take my life You are all I live for
I am Yours

Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my King
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee
Filled with messages from Thee

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
It shall be Thy royal throne

I Am Yours
Michael Neale
