Meditating the Word of God – 9th November, a beautiful hymn for today
A surrendered life to the Lord Jesus is praiseworthy. When we obey the commandments, when we do the will of Jesus, we have a surrendered life. Our old man with envy, bitterness, jealousy no longer has any expression, but the goddess and love alone finds expression in our lives. The earlier, we step into fulfilling the plans that our Lord intends for us, the better. Thus, a surrendered life is a victorious life. Good to know this hymn and know it well in your heart as a prayer.
The hymn is an expression of this verse. And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. ( Verse Romans 12:1 version NLT)
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.
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 silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose,
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,
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,
Ever, only, all for Thee.
