“Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days;
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.”
Many believers are familiar with the hymn “Take My Life and Let It Be” but few know the story or author behind it. In this book, the hymnwriter, Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879), shares the thoughts and experience behind the worship classic.
Line by line, Havergal takes the reader through the hymn, explaining thematically what it means to live, day by day, as one submitted to Christ. Despite a lifetime battling chronic pain, Havergal rejoiced in a life consecrated to her Master.
Although written more than one hundred years ago, Havergal’s words are still relevant because Christ’s call for complete devotion-of hands, feet, voice, mind, emotions, and livelihood-is unchanged. Perfect as an inspirational study or for personal devotions, Kept for the Master’s Use is an emboldening call to live a life fully consecrated to Jesus Christ.
