1 May the mind of Christ, my Savior,
live in me from day to day,
by his love and power controlling
all I do and say.

Refrain:
May we run the race before us,
leave the sin that weighs our souls,
looking only unto Jesus
as our source and goal.

2 May the word of God dwell richly
in my heart from hour to hour,
so that all may see I triumph
only through his power. (Refrain)

3 May the peace of God, my Father,
rule my life in everything,
that I may be calm to comfort
sick and sorrowing. (Refrain)

4 May the love of Jesus fill me
as the waters fill the sea.
let the showers of his mercy
fill the world through me.
