Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

We should possess the Savior's mind

We should possess the Savior's mind

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
