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.

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!

We are studying the Life of Moses in BSF. I love how despite his past, Moses chose to leave it all and walk with the Lord every day. As I answered my lesson, I prayed to God that I would learn to walk with him EVERY SINGLE DAY, every hour, every minute. And as I finished answering the day's questions, this morning, this hymn crossed my mind. We learnt it in high school and it was a favourite hymn for me. So I looked it up to to remember all the words and I was blessed anew, by the words and all the comments too. May God teach us to walk with Him day by day...

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.
