551. O to Be Like Thee!

1 O to be like Thee! blessed Redeemer,
This is my constant longing and prayer.
Gladly I’ll forfeit all of earth’s treasures,
Jesus, Thy perfect likeness to wear.

Refrain:
O to be like Thee! O to be like Thee,
Blessed Redeemer, pure as Thou art!
Come in Thy sweetness, come in Thy fullness;
Stamp Thine own image deep on my heart.

2 O to be like Thee! full of compassion,
Loving, forgiving, tender and kind;
Helping the helpless, cheering the fainting,
Seeking the wand’ring sinner to find. [Refrain]

3 O to be like Thee! while I am pleading,
Pour out Thy Spirit; fill with Thy love.
Make me a temple meet for Thy dwelling,
Fit me for life and heaven above. [Refrain]
