Ever, Only, all for Thee

Home » Original Songs » Updated Hymns


This beautiful hymn expresses our desire as believers to give all of who we are to gain all of who Christ is, dying to self and living for Christ. Whether it is our time, our body, love, voice, money, will, or heart - we offer ourselves as living sacrifices (Romans 12:1) to worship the God who gave us these things to begin with.


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.

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.

Take my love; my Lord, I pour
At Your feet it's treasure store:
Take myself, and I will be,
Ever, only, all, all 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,
Filled with messages from Thee.

Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold:
Take my intellect, and use
Every pow'r as Thou shalt choose,
Every pow'r 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,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

Original words by Frances R. Havergal (1836-79). Adapted by David L. Ward.
