Song of the Month

(Every month we will be featuring a new or a lesser sung hymn. Worship leaders can then make use of this hymn during worship. The idea is to introduce a new song to the church with a particular theme. Or to revive a lesser sung hymn)

This month’s song: “May the Mind of Christ My Saviour”

Words: Katie Barclay Wilkinson (1859-1928).

Lyrics of the Song:

1
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.

2
May the Word of Christ 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 Christ my Savior
Rule my life in every thing,
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 I onward go.

6
May His beauty rest upon me
As I seek the lost to win,
And may they forget the channel,
Seeing only Him.
