Take My Life and Let It Be composed by Paul A. McKlveen. For handbells (3-5 octaves) (with optional 3 octave handchimes). Level 3. Handbell score. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGB539).

The hymntune HENDON is given sensitive treatment in this arrangement, which offers developing ringers the chance to work with simple syncopation patterns, LVs with selective damping, and playing both handbells and handchimes. Listeners will enjoy hearing the variety of treatments given to the three stanzas of the hymn, such as the use of handchimes and different harmonies. With only one key change, several accidentals and a few tempo changes, this arrangement will allow less experienced ringers to grow, while keeping the interest of more experienced ringers.
