Hymn/Song Information

Ever patient loving meek Holy Saviour was thy mind




Ever patient, gentle, meek,
Holy Saviour! was thy mind;
Vainly in myself I seek
Likeness to my Lord to find;
Yet that mind which was in thee,
May be, must be formed in me.


Days of toil, ‘mid throngs of men,
Vexed not, ruffled not thy soul;
Still collected calm, serene,
Thou each feeling couldst control
Lord, that mind which was in thee,
May be, must be formed in me.


Though such griefs were thine to bear
For each sufferer thou couldst feel
Every mourner’s burden share,
Every wounded spirit heal:
Saviour! let thy grace in me
Form that mind which was in thee.


When my pain is most intense,
Let thy cross my lesson prove;
Let me hear thee, e’en from thence,
Breathing words of peace and love.
Saviour! let thy grace in me
Form that mind which was in thee.

Ever patient, loving, meek,
Holy Saviour, was thy mind;
Vainly in myself I seek
Likeness to my Lord to find;
Yet the mind that was in thee
May be, must be, formed in me.


Since such griefs were thine to bear,
For each sufferer thou couldst feel,
Every mourner’s burden share,
Every wounded spirit heal.
Saviour, let thy grace in me
Form that mind which was in thee.


When my pain is most intense,
Let thy cross my lesson prove;
Let me hear thee even thence;
Breathing words of peace and love;
Thus thy grace shall form in me
The same mind which was in thee.
