May the Mind of Christ, My Savior Lyrics
1 May the mind of Christ, my Savior,
Live in me from day to day,
By his love and power controlling
All I do and say.
2 May the word of God dwell richly
In my heart from hour to hour,
So that all may see I triumph
Only through his power.
3 May the peace of God, my Father,
Rule my life in everything,
That I may be calm to comfort
Sick and sorrowing.
4 May the love of Jesus fill me
As the waters fill the sea.
Him exalting, self abasing:
This is victory.
5 May we run the race before us,
Strong and brave to face the foe,
Looking only unto Jesus
As we onward go.
