"Roy Hopp's Take My Life uses Timothy Hoekman's tune TEBBEN to great advantage." -AAM Journal, Feb. 1996

Description
A beloved text is given new meaning with this increasingly popular tune of Timothy Hoekman. Hopp has effectively set the tune with unison, ATB, and SATB sections. The text is given in two versions (original and updated).

Text
Take my life and let it be
yours for all eternity.
Take my moments and my days;
let them sing your endless praise.

Take my hands and let them move
at the impulse of your love.
Take my feet and lead their way;
never let them go astray.

Take my voice and let me sing
always, only for my King.
Take my lips and keep them true,
filled with messages from you.

Take my wealth, all I possess;
make me rich in faithfulness.
Take my mind that I may use
every power as you shall choose.

Take my motives and my will,
all your purpose to fulfill.
Take my heart it is your own;
it shall be your royal throne.

Take my love; my Lord, I pour
at your feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
yours for all eternity.

Text: Frances Havergal, 1874, alt.

Alternate text
Take my life and let it be
consecrated, Lord, to thee.
Take my moments and my days;
let them flow in endless 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.

Text: Frances Havergal, 1874.
