Take My Life

This song is by Third Day and appears…

Third Day 1996 album version:
How many times have I turned away
The number is the same as the sand on the shore
But every time You've taken me back.
And now I pray You do it once more.

Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You
Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You Jesus

How many times have I turned away
The number is the same as the stars in the sky
But every time You've taken me back
And now I pray You do it tonight.

Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You
Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You, Jesus
To give it away to You, Jesus






Offerings II album version:
Spoken:
We're going to teach you all a song
Well, some of you may know it, it's from our first record.
But, uh, we're going to tape it tonight just to see how it sounds with all you singing, all right?
Yeah.
So, a little practice run through, the words go like this:
Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You
Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You, Jesus
Uh, and it goes like this:

Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You
Please take from me my life - spoken
Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away - spoken
To give it away to You, Jesus

Spoken:
That's not bad, that's pretty doggone good.
Let's see how you sound.

How many times have I turned away
The number is the same as the sand on the shore
Every time You've taken me back
And now I pray You'll do it once more

Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You
Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You, Jesus

How many times have I gone astray
The number is the same as the stars in the skies
Every time You've taken me back
And now I pray You'll do it tonight

Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You
Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You, Jesus

You sing - spoken

Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You
Oh
Please take from me my life
When I don't have the strength
To give it away to You, Jesus
To give it away to You, Jesus
To give it away to You, Jesus

Yeah, that sounded great. That's awesome. - Spoken
