Prayerfully

1. Lord, take these hands;

Let me touch a life and serve Thee willingly,

Lord, take these ears;

Let me hear Thy words and humbly follow Thee.

I desire to rely

On the One whose mighty power can do anything.

Simple gifts I now bring;

These I offer to set before my King.

May I serve Thee.

2. Lord, take these lips;

Let the words I speak be formed at Thy command.

Grant me the will

To gain knowledge all hearts can understand.

I desire to rely

On the One whose mighty power can do anything.

Simple gifts I now bring;

These I offer to set before my King.

May I serve Thee.

3. Give my heart song;

Let the notes combine to ring eternal truth,

Lifting my soul,

Ev’ry moment let my song begin anew.

I desire to rely

On the One whose mighty power can do anything.

All I have I now bring;

To set before my Savior, Lord, and King.

May I serve Thee,

May I serve Thee, Lord.

May I humbly live for Thee.
