585. May the Mind of Christ My Savior

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.

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 pow'r.

3 May the peace of God, my Father,
rule my life in ev'rything,
that I may be calm to comfort
sick and sorrowing.

4 May the love of Jesus fill me
as the waters fill the sea;
him exalting, self abasing -
this is victory.

5 May I run the race before me,
strong and brave to face the foe,
looking only unto Jesus
as we onward go.

6 May his beauty rest upon me
as I seek the lost to win,
may they look beyond my witness
seeing only him.
