Sunday Song

Hebrews 4:13
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Today’s sermon was about not being greedy, whether it be our attitude toward having “stuff” or how we are greedy with our time and things of eternal value (blessings, talents, and relationships, etc…).    These are actually things that I’ve been thinking about for a few weeks, so I think God was preparing my heart for this sermon.  So, I asked Him to move a bit in my life, so that my life can be lived more for Him and to bless others.

The hymn that really pulled the sermon to its point is the one I’ve provided below, as my Sunday Song.  If you read it according to punctuation, you will see just how important that relationship with God is, how EVERYTHING we have is under Him, and that we should be giving things to Him daily to keep that proper perspective.

“Take my life and let it be”
Frances R. Havergal, 1874

1. Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
2. Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee;
Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.
3. Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee;
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
4. Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise;
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.
5. 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.
6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

“Take my life and let it be”
