Take my life and make me, Lord
To Thy image be conformed.
Let my conduct this day be
Glorifying, Lord to Thee.
Touch my heart and make it pure.
May my faithfulness endure.
Anoint my head with grace divine.
Ley my will be only Thine.
Take my hands and make them Yours,
Keep them busy with saintly chores.
Touch my eyes and make me see,
The work You;ve planned, just for me.
Let my lips speak only love,
Encouraging words, sent from above.
May my footsteps ever be,
Guided daily, Lord, by Thee.
Give me wisdom, Lord, I pray
To live and love for You each day.
Grant these things, I humbly plead.
You know my every want and need.
And when this earthly life is o'er,
I'll disembark upon that shore,
To enter my eternal rest,
Content - having done my very best.
