Hymn Favorites

Here is one of my favorite hymns with more to follow. Take a moment to meditate.

May the mind of Christ, my Savior,
Live in me from day to day,
By His love and power controlling
All I do and say.

May the Word of God dwell richly
In my heart from hour to hour,
So that all may see I triumph
Only through His power.

May the peace of God my Father
Rule my life in everything,
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.

May the Mind of Christ, My Savior. Kate B. Wilkinson, 1925.

  1. YES! This is definitely one of my top three as well. I so seldom see or hear this hymn, but it holds a special place in my heart and memory. The first year I was a camp counselor, all of us used to stand on stage at the closing ceremony and sing this hymn to our campers and their parents. It was very moving every time.

  2. I was introduced to it at Moody and have loved it ever since. The music is very plain, so I would love to see a contemporary remix.
