Two weeks ago, I asked hubby if he would choose the following hymn to sing in the evening service.
I grew up singing it, but had not sung it in years.
It has been a frequent prayer of mine in the past week and a half.
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 pow'r 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 thru His pow'r.
May the peace of God, my Father, rule my life in ev'rything,
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.
