May the Mind of Christ my Savior

The lyrics to these verses were written by Kate Wilkinson (1859-1928) based on Philippians 2:5.

Verse 1
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.

Chorus
Oh Jesus, Savior
You are the God who saves
Oh Jesus, Savior
Name above all names

Verse 2
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.

Verse 3
May the peace of God my Father
Rule my life in everything,
That I may be calm to comfort
Sick and sorrowing.

Verse 4
May the love of Jesus fill me,
As the waters fill the sea;
Him exalting, self abasing,
This is victory.

Verse 5
May I run the race before me,
Strong and brave to face the foe,
Looking only unto Jesus
As I onward go.

Verse 6
May His beauty rest upon me
As I seek the lost to win,
And may they forget the channel,
Seeing only Him.
