  Prayer of St. Ignatius
Lord Jesus Christ, take all my freedom, my memory, my understanding and my will.
All that I have and cherish you have given me.
I surrender it all to be guided by your will.
Your grace and your love are wealth enough for me.
Give me these, Lord Jesus, and I ask for nothing more.

Take all my freedom, my liberty, my will.
All that I have you've given to me,
So I offer it up to you.

I surrender it all to Jesus.
I surrender it all to your will.
I surrender it all for the kingdom of God.
I surrender my life, my all.

Your grace and your love are weath enough for me.
Grant me these, Lord Jesus Christ,
And I ask for nothing more.
- John Michael Talbot

Take, Lord, receive all my liberty
My memory, understanding, my entire will.

Give me only your love and your grace, that's enough for me
Your love and your grace are enough for me.

Take, Lord, receive all I have and posess.
You have given all to me, now I return it.

Take, Lord, receive, all is yours now
Dispose of it wholly according to your will.

Hi! I'm not very good with current things like this web page, but I was looking for the lyrics for Take Lord, Receive, and I found it here! Thank you; my friend and I are going to learn it on the guitar. I intend to look at some of your links. With a cursory glance, we seem to be like-minded when it comes to music. This is the music for MASS, doncha think??? I grow increasingly weary of songs that talk in Jesus voice or are full of stuff about the congregation and not about He Whom we gather to worship in the first place! You can tell I'm an Adoramus girl! Thanks! Pamela
Hi, Pamela. I just noticed your comment and hope you come back to check this someday. I agree with everything you are saying. I hope you found this site useful.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
