LXIV. We should possess the Saviour's mind

1 We should possess the Saviour's mind,
Like him be humble, meek and kind;
Esteem the world as filth and dross,
And be resign'd to bear the cross.

2 All pow'r and glory is his own,
But yet he left his heav'nly throne--
He came, and gave himself to be,
Expos'd to pain and misery.

3 On Calvery he groan'd and bled,
Until he bow'd his sacred head!
He died in sorrow, grief and pain,
But by his pow'r he rose again.

4 He hath ascended up on high!
He reigns above, beyond the sky--
And ev'ry knee to him shall bow,
In heav'n above, and earth below.

5 Immortal honors there he claims!
His name exceeds all other names:
None such on earth, or yet in heav'n
As that which god to him has giv'n.

6 Not Men or Angels e'er can raise,
Such notes as fully sound his praise;
Yet let us join with them to sing
the praises of the Lord our King.
