Take My Life, and Let It Be Consecrated was written by hymnist, Frances Ridley Havergal, daughter of the well-known English hymnist William Havergal. Francis wrote that it was on occasion of visiting the home of a friend that the hymn was composed. It seems there were ten persons in the home that she was visiting, some converted and some still unconverted. She prayed, "Lord, give me all in this house!" At the end of her visit, all were converted. It was then that she penned the hymn that ends with "Ever only, all for Thee!" Multiple voicings, instrumental parts and a beautiful fully-orchestrated accompaniment track are available.
Inst. Parts Available (choral); Recorded Acc. Available.

    This is an appropriate anthem for Stewardship Sunday. This is not one of Mark Hayes' better works, however; the harmonies are fairly predictable and formula driven, but it is fairly easy to prepare, and easy on the ear. Alfred should be ashamed of the fact that the cover states it...

    is "arranged" by Francis (sic) R. Havergal, the 19th century writer of the text. Her name is Frances, and the piece is actually composed by Mark Hayes.
