Christ of the Upward Way

Christ of the upward way, my Guide divine,
Where Thou hast set Thy feet, may I place mine;

Keeping face forward up the hill of God.

I Lift My Heart to Thee

Take Thou Our Minds, Dear Lord

Take Thou our minds, dear Lord, we humbly pray,
Give us the mind of Christ each passing day;
Teach us to know the truth that sets us free;
Grant us in all our thoughts to honor Thee.
