Prayer for Surrender

We often talk and share about the notion of surrender.

Take a look at this beautiful poem, a sincere prayer, that does a fantastic job of showing what “surrender in action” is like, to the one who surrenders:

Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days;
Let them flow in ceaseless 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 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.”

Shirley Chacko

In Your Love, let this I dissolve
Let no trace of otherness remain
May this body-mind solely revolve
As instrument of Grace for others’ gain
