[The Mind of Christ desired.] Published in Hymns & Sacred Poems, 1742, p. 221, in 20 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed, "Let this Mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus" (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. ii. p. 276). A hymn therefrom of 13 stanza, beginning with the first, was given in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 345, and has been repeated in several other collections. There are also three additional centos in common use: (1) "Jesus, plant and root in me"; (2) "Jesus, root and fix in me"; and (3) "God of Jesus, hear me now." The last appeared in Martineau's Hymns, 1840.
