The Sings My Sould Saturdays - Take My Life

I have always loved this hymn ... but Chris Tomlin's rendition has me captivated! I added this song to a list of 18 that I placed in a BirthMusic playlist on my ipod and took that to the hospital last week when our baby Mary was born. Well, as it turns out, our little Mary was born to this song. As she entered this world and as we heard her first cry, we were listening to the chorus that goes "Here am I, all of me. Take my life, its all for Thee." I do pray that will be true of her life ... and mine ... lived all for THEE, Lord.

Artist: Chris Tomlin
Song: Take my life

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 might would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use every power as you choose.

Here am I, all of me.
Take my life, it's all for 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.
Take my love, my Lord I pour at your feet its treasure store
Take myself and I will be ever, only all for thee,
Take myself and I will be ever, only all for thee.

Here am I, All of me.
Take my life, It's all for thee.

(Take my life, Lord take my life. take all of me)

Here am I, All of me.
Take my life, It's all for thee.
