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.

Wonderful hymn. So much fantastic truth about in every verse. I'm encouraged and challenged by it so often.

This is one of my favorites. It is a prayer that challenges me every time I sing it to Him. How far I fall short, but how this compels me forward.

This was, and is still my college anthem. Deep words that have shaped us and still guideour daily lives. I remain grateful to Gindiri!


Was my school hymn for 12 years and we always made fun of it but now I’m glad I know it so well—beautiful prayer to sing.

I long for You Jesus..... A real inspirational song from God. Bless His name forever.


Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

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!
