C. Wesley

Jesus, plant and root in me

All the mind that was in Thee;

Settled peace I then shall find;

Jesus’ is a quiet mind.


Anger I no more shall feel,

Always even, always still;

Meekly on my God reclined

Jesus’ is a gentle mind.


I shall suffer and fulfil

All my Father’s gracious will;

Be in all alike resigned;

Jesus’ is a patient mind.


When ’tis deeply rooted here,

Perfect love shall cast out fear;

Fear doth servile spirits bind;

Jesus’ is a noble mind.


I shall nothing know beside

Jesus, and Him crucified:

Perfectly to Him be joined;

Jesus’ is a loving mind.


I shall triumph evermore;

Gratefully my God adore;

God so good, so true, so kind;

Jesus’ is a thankful mind.


Lowly, loving, meek and pure,

I shall to the end endure:

Be no more to sin inclined;

Jesus’ is a constant mind.


I shall fully be restored

To the image of my Lord;

Witnessing to all mankind,

Jesus’ is a perfect mind.
