Sunday Hymn & Spires

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 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.

“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Philippians 2:5-8 (ESV)

This is Timberlake Church on Main Street in Duvall, Washington.

I’m linking up to InSPIREd Sunday with Beth and Sally.

Rebecca Writes has been posting links to Sunday Hymns for years and she graciously adds my Hymn each Sunday.

  1. I have to tell you that this is the hymn that has been on my heart lately! Bekah played it one evening and Kati and I made her stop while we found the words and we sang it together while she played. She filled in for our regular pianist at church yesterday and this is one of the songs that she chose for us all to sing together.

    Oh, such beautiful, stirring words!! It is my prayer. Thanks for sharing this!

  2. Thanks for bringing this song back to mind Ellen. I miss these old hymns and love to be reminded of them. So much to encourage me to remain in Him in these words.
