Hymn & Scripture Challenge #5 - May the Mind of Christ My Savior

Patter has given us another wonderful old hymn in this week's challenge:

May the Mind of Christ My Savior
Text Written by: Kate B. Wilkinson
Music Written by: A. Cyril Barham-Gould

Check out Patter's blog Triple the Scraps for details about this hymn and it's author.  Here again we have another beautiful old hymn that I am unfamiliar with because it is found in the protestant hymnal.  As these old hymns begin to find a home in the hymnals of the Catholic Church, they gain new life and the appreciation of a whole new audience of believers.

As I read through Patter's study of this hymn today, my thoughts went immediately to the fact that the words of the author are words of seeking.  Seeking to be like Him, seeking His mind, His peace, His love...

The Lord wants us to seek Him and to seek to be like Him and He promises to be with us always.

The scripture verse I selected for my page is from Matthew Chapter 28, Verse 20

"I am with you always, until the very end of time."
