     1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. 4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. 6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; 7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; 8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.(KJV)

Hymn: WS 786:
Take My Life and Let It Be

1. 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. 

2. 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. 

3. 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. 

4. Take my silver and my gold;  
Not a mite would I withhold. 
Take my intellect and use  
Ev’ry pow’r as Thou shalt choose,  
Ev’ry pow’r as Thou shalt choose. 

5. 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. 

6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour 
At Thy feet its treasure store. 
Take myself, and I will be 
Ever, only, all for Thee. 
Ever, only, all for Thee.
