'We Praise You with our Minds, O Lord'

Mark 12:30 NIV
Love the Lord Your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.

Deuteronomy 6:5 NAS
And you shall love the Lord Your God with all Your heart and with all your soul and with all Your might.

We Praise You with our Minds, O Lord”...a 1921 hymn written by Hugh T. McElrath

We praise You with our minds, O Lord, kept sharp to think Your thought;
Come, Holy Ghost with grace out-poured, to teach what Christ has taught.
In all our learning may we seek that wisdom from above,
Which comes to all: the brave, the meek, who ask in faith and love.

We praise you through our bodies, Lord, kept strong to do Your will;
Your Spirit's temples, which afford a means to praise You still.
We give ourselves a sacrifice, to live our lives for You;
For You alone have paid the price to bring salvation true.

We praise You in our hearts, O King, kept pure to know Your ways;
And raise to You a hymn to sing eternally Your praise.
Although adoring hearts will bow as age on ages roll;
We praise You in our beings now, mind, body, heart and soul.

Lord, help us love You even MORE now...with ALL our “minds,” “bodies, and “hearts!”

AMEN!!!
