Happy New Year!

     With everyone making new years resolutions around this time a year I thought I would post this hymn.  Whoever wrote sure made a big commitment.  Making resolutions is good, if you can keep them.  We need to continually be in prayer and asking the Lord to help us.  One of my goals this year is to love more.  To love my enemies(if I get any), to love my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ more, to love Christ more.  Also to find ways to show it. :)  Here is the hymn.

Take My Life and Let it Be

Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee; Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of thy love, 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, always, only, for my King.

Take my lips, and let them be filled with messages for Thee; Take my silver and my gold, not a mite would I withhold, not a mite would I withhold.

Take my love, my God, I pour at thy feet its treasure store; Take myself and I will be ever, only, all for Thee, Ever, only, all for Thee.

Current Mood: Determined, and Thoughtful
