By Request, ‘Lord, Take All That I Have’

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights…” (James 1:17)

Requested by Erlene, Lord, Take All That I Have, by Carroll Roberson.

Every good thing we have, every good thing that we know–it all traces back to the Father.

  1. Thank you. I love this song, and it is, as you say, a reminder of what Scripture tells us.
    I don’t really have much to offer, but I know that such as I have is a gift from my Father, and I am grateful.

  2. An interesting variation on the “Suscipe” prayer of St. Ignatius of Loyola: “Lord, take all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my will. All that I am and all that I have come from you; take them again and use them according to your will. Give me only your love and your grace and I will want [i.e., lack] for nothing.” I pray that prayer every day as part of my morning offering prayers.
