May the mind of Christ my Savior

May the mind of Christ my Savior
Live in me from day to day,
By His love and pow’r controlling
  All I do and say.
May the Word of Christ dwell richly
In my heart from hour to hour,
So that all may see I triumph
  Only through His pow’r.
May the peace of Christ my Savior
Rule my life in every thing,
That I may be calm to comfort
  Sick and sorrowing.
May the love of Jesus fill me,
As the waters fill the sea;
Him exalting, self abasing,
  This is victory.
May I run the race before me,
Strong and brave to face the foe,
Looking only unto Jesus
  As I onward go.
May His beauty rest upon me
As I seek the lost to win,
And may they forget the channel,
  Seeing only Him.

I really love this song. My church went through a tragic time; our bus crashed on the way home to camp in July of 2013. The song never gets old and is a constant reminder of how much God loves us!!!!!!!!!!

I think these words need to be applied to our everyday lives, in how we think, feel, react, and how we treat others. What a better world it would be for all!

These are powerful words indeed. I am praying for the other folks that left comments. "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13



Thanks for this hymn! I feel much strengthened after singing it!


You could really make a sermon out of every stanza. Such powerful and true words.

This song got me through a really tough time of conflict, as I struggled with what to think. People I loved were on opposing sides of an issue and I desperately wanted only to be on God's side - LOVE!

These words really are so power, beautiful and poignant. An apt reminder of what we are and are being transformed to be!

We sang this song in church this morning...and the verse "May the peace of Christ my Savior" really hit me. I lost my older brother on Sept 14th to alcoholism...just one month after losing my Mum to dementia on Aug 14th. I've been praying to God for peace of mind and last night I had the first restful full nights sleep. God is good!!!

This was my old headmaster's personal favourite when I was at school in Ormskirk (UK) back in the 60's. We sang it perhaps too often, to the exclusion of others, but read slowly and thoughtfully, these words are marvellous.
