152b. How to Grow Like Jesus

1 Looking upward every day,
Sunshine on our faces;
Pressing onward every day
Towards the heavenly places.

Chorus:
Growing up, growing up,
More and more like Jesus,
Learning every day from him
How to grow in Jesus.

2 Walking every day more close
To our Elder Brother;
Growing every day more true
Unto one another. [Chorus]

3 Leaving every day behind
Something which might hinder;
Doing better every day,
Growing purer, kinder. [Chorus]

4 Lord, so pray we every day,
Hear us in thy pity,
That we enter in at last
To the Holy City. [Chorus]
