Theme:Offering, Preparation



Take Thou our thoughts, Lord we humbly pray;
Give us the mind of Christ every day;
Teach us to know the truth that sets us free;
Grant each thought to honor thee.

Take Thou ourselves, Lord
Our hearts, mind, and will;
Thy plans fulfill.
We yield our lives, Lord
Our time and talents, all.
We heed thy sovreign call.

Take Thou our hearts, they are thine own;
Come in our souls and claim Thy throne;
Help us to spread abroad Thy endless love;
Make our lives like heav'n above.


Take Thou our will, hold Thou full sway;
Have in our souls Thy perfect way;
Guard Thou each sacred hour from selfish ease;
Guide our lives as Thy would please.
