May the mind of Christ my Savior

1
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.
2
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.
3
May the peace of Christ my Savior
Rule my life in every thing,
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 I run the race before me,
Strong and brave to face the foe,
Looking only unto Jesus
  As I onward go.
6
May His beauty rest upon me
As I seek the lost to win,
And may they forget the channel,
  Seeing only Him.

We keep our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, and this helps make this hymn our prayer. And we are surrounded by the great cloud of witnesses who have with gripped hands and tired knees run this same race before us and been victorious.

What a beautiful prayer. What a beautiful song. What a beautiful salvation. What a beautiful God. May we, by the grace of God, live the Words of this song.

The timeless truths in this hymn give me strength as I walk through a difficult time. Scripture tells us we can have the mind of Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit, Who is a gift to those who believe. I proclaim His victory over sin and death when I focus on Him and not my problems. Thanks be to God!

I cried so hard after singing this hymn and reading the comments. This song is a peace bringer and a fear breaker. I am grateful to God for such a song that brings life and inspiration to all who cares for it!!! May the mind of God dwell richly in us all, Amen.

Simply amazed at four Spirit led coincidences here. That recent comments come from people within an hour from my home. That I had prayed for The Mind of Christ.That a U tube sermon on the topic came up. That I had received full imm baptism not long ago age 77! After 60 years of Christian faith. This hymn lights up my heart from dark forces. Praise God! ☺

I heard this on a Christian radio station this morning and am using it as my prayer for today as I am so conscious of needing the attributes of God's Holy Spirit to keep me in His will.

As I prayed today, this hymn crossed my mind and I googled to find the words. Timeless truths even reading from the comments. The word of the Lord will never lose it's power. God bless you all.

Worship before service. That was the life of Anna, as she served God in the temple. We know little of this lady except that she was devoted to God. When pondering the great lesson of her life I remembered this lovely devotional hymn, learnt as a child and brought to mind by the Spirit at times such as these, when my activity need the fuel of praise and worship so that my motivation is Godly pertinent.

This my hymn when baptised by immersion in 1975. It covers all we need to be to live a Christ-like life. Pray continually for a renewed mind and you will grow closer to Him and all He has in mind for you to carry out in His name. I pray God's blessings on all who read this. Amen.

What amazing words - I went to my secret place today with this hymn on my mind - a Holy Spirit inspired moment. If Christians throughout the world could be encouraged to pray this hymn from the heart the effect could be amazing!
