Take My Life (Malan)
Frances R. Havergal (1874)
Arranged by:
Wade Phelps

History of the Hymn

“I went for a lit­tle vi­sit of five days (to Are­ley House). There were ten per­sons in the house, some un­con­vert­ed and long prayed for, some con­vert­ed, but not re­joic­ing Christ­ians. He gave me the pra­yer, “Lord, give me all in this house!” And He just did. Be­fore I left the house ev­ery one had got a bless­ing. The last night of my vis­it af­ter I had re­tired, the gov­ern­ess asked me to go to the two daugh­ters. They were cry­ing, &c.; then and there both of them trust­ed and re­joiced; it was near­ly mid­night. I was too hap­py to sleep, and passed most of the night in praise and re­new­al of my own con­se­cra­tion; and these lit­tle coup­lets formed them­selves, and chimed in my heart one af­ter ano­ther till they fin­ished with “Ever, On­ly, ALL for Thee!”
Havergal Manuscripts

Lyrics in English

1. 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.

2. Take my eyes and let me see all the good that comes from Thee. Take my ears and let them hear loving words ring loud and clear, loving words ring loud and clear.

3. 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.

4. Take my voice and let me sing always, only, for my King. Take my love, my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure store, at Thy feet its treasure store.

5. Take my wealth and all my gold, not a mite would I withhold. Take my intellect and use all it’s pow’r as Thou may choose, all its pow’r as Thou may choose.

Lyrics in German

1. Herr, mein Leben, es sei dein!
Laß dir’s ganz geheiligt sein!
Nimm dir hin all meine Zeit;
dir sei sie zum Preis geweiht!

2. Nimm die Augen, daß die nur
schau’n nach deiner Gnade Spur!
Nimm die Ohren, daß sie fein
hören auf dein Wort allein!

3. Nimm die Hände, daß sie sich
regen nur in Lieb für dich!
Nimm die Füße, daß sie schön
auf dem schmalen Pfade gehn!

4. Nimm die Stimme hin sofort,
dir tön’ sie an jedem Ort!
Nimm die Zunge, lenke sie
dir zum Lobe spät und früh!

5. Nimm dir all mein Gut und Geld,
dir sei’s in den Dienst gestellt!
Nimm die Kraft von Seel’ und Leib!
Alles, Herr, ich dir verschreib’.

6. Nimm den Willen, er sei dein
und nicht länger mehr noch mein!
Nimm mein Herz, o Gottes Sohn,
weih es dir zu deinem Thron!
