Lyrics & Devotional Notes
Take Us Now
I wrote this song especially for people to sing when they are giving money for God’s work. But the
song talks about more than just money. It’s about us giving ourselves, our lives, to God.
For all your goodness, Lord, we give you thanks.
You have done marvelous things for us.
You gave your Son to die in our place.
Take us now, we are yours.
Our earthly riches are yours alone.
You gave them to us to call our own.
Take them and use them to spread your love,
To bring your people home.
Give us your Spirit, Lord, so we can see
Everything you want us all to be.
Give us your strength to live through it all
Faithful to you, dear Lord.
C. Chris Jaensch. 1985.
