Words of Wisdom Wednesday

These words of wisdom come from Kate B. Wilkinson can be found in many old hymnbooks. If our family has a "theme song," I think it would be this one.

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 thoruhg his pow'r.

May the peace of God my Father, rule my life in everything,
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 my they forget the channel, seeing only Him.

Seeking to serve, I
