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 woke up this morning with the words of this song in my mouth. A great prayer. Used to be my high school song in the sixties. I didn't realise the truths at the time but now I do. It is still prayer today. May God help me.

May I run the race before me,

Strong and brave to face the foe,

Looking only unto Jesus

As I onward go.

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.
