Take My Life

My church is doing a New Years Eve service, and one of the songs is Take My Life, by Chris Tomlin (Best ever).  I love him and his songs. They are amazing and powerful and the music alone gets me.  I haven't been able to get this song out of my head for like two weeks... I love the words, the meaning, the accountability, the power, the humbleness, the music, the way it makes me think and feel... So, I figured I'd share.  We are know I'm obsessed with music and share songs occasionally :) OH, and working on a New Year "resolution" post, so stay tuned!

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 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.
