Description

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

 
Despite a lifetime battling chronic pain, English poet and hymnwriter Francis Ridley Havergal (1836–1879) reveled in a life consecrated and surrendered to her Master. In this book, she gives the reader a glimpse of the reflections, at the same time personal and theological, behind her well-known worship classic, “Take My Life and Let It Be.”

Although written more than one hundred years ago, her words are still relevant for today because Christ’s call for complete devotion—of hands, feet, voice, mind, emotions, and livelihood—remains 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 dedicated to Christ.
