With Thee – I Let It Be

Affirming The Classics: Take My Life And Let It Be
Frances Ridley Havergal

With my life, I let it be
Consecrated, Lord, with Thee
With my moments and my days
They now flow in Divine ways

With my hands, I let them move
At the impulse of Thy Love
With my feet, I let them be
Aligned on my path with Thee

With my voice, I clearly sing
Always, only truth I bring
With my words, I let them be
Filled with Love, Light and Beauty

With my treasures I declare
To ever give, always to share
With my intellect, I choose
Pure Divine power to use

With my freewill, God given
I live on Earth as Heaven
With my Heart, at core my Soul
Bringing Peace, and Love my goal

With my Love, and radiant Light
I only see with Source sight
I Am Sovereign, always free
God eternally in me

About This Poem

With myAffirming The Classicscollection I update older poems and hymns to make them read more positive and as affirmations.

In this re-write the main difference is in claiming our own Divine Power rather than the old vibrational perspective of giving our power away, and asking for help. Although the asking is requesting to the Highest Source, it creates our reality that this Source is outside of ourselves.

Original hymn:

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 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

Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all, for Thee

Frances Ridley Havergal 1836 – 1879
