Take My Life, That I May Be #583
REFRAIN: Take my life, that I may be
consecrated, Lord to thee,
Take my moments and my days;
let them flow in ceaseless praise
my hands and let them move
At the impulse of thy love;
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for thee REFRAIN
my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect and use
every power as though shalt choose REFRAIN
my voice and let me sing
Always, only for my King;
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from thee. REFRAIN
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. REFRAIN
LBW #409 Praise and Thanksgiving
- Praise and thanksgiving, Father, we offer
for all things living, Created good:
harvest of sown fields, fruits of the orchard,
hay from the mown fields, blossom and wood.
2. Bless, Lord, the labor
we bring to serve you,
that with our neighbor we may be fed.
Sowing or tilling, we would work with you,
harvesting, milling for daily bread.
- Father, providing food for your children,
by your wise guiding teach us to share
one with another, so that, rejoicing
with us, all others may know your care.
Then will your blessing reach ev’ry people,
freely confessing your gracious hand.
Where all obey you,, no one will hunger;
In your love’s swqy you nourish the land.
On What Has Now Been Sown #550
what has now been sown
Your blessing Lord, bestow,
The power is your alone
to make it sprout and grow
O Lord, in grace The harvest raise,
and yours alone shall be the praise!
you our wants are known,
from you are all our powers
Accept what is your own
and pardon what is ours.
Our praises Lord, And prayers receive
and to your word a blessing give
grant that each of us,
Now met before you here,
May meet together thus
when you and yours appear
And follow you To heaven our home.
Even so, Amen! Lord Jesus come!
