A HYMN FOR TODAY – Take Thou Our Minds, Dear Lord

A HYMN FOR TODAY

Take Thou our minds, dear Lord, we humbly pray;
Give us the mind of Christ each passing day;
Teach us to know the truth that sets us free;
Grant us in all our thoughts to honor Thee.

Take Thou our hearts, O Christ – they are Thine own;
Come Thou within our souls and claim Thy throne;
Help us to shed abroad Thy deathless love;
Use us to make the earth like heav’n above.

Take Thou ourselves, O Lord – heart, mind, and will;
Through our surrendered souls Thy plans fulfill.
We yield ourselves to Thee – time, talents, all;
We hear, and henceforth heed, Thy sov’reign call.

10.10.10.10 – William H. Foulkes, 1918

Tune: HALL – Calvin W. Laufer, 1918
