Representative Text

1 After the likeness of Jesus,
Growing in grace day by day,
Ever increasing in stature,
Till we His image portray.

Chorus:
Sing of that wonderful Jesus!
Sing of that beauty divine!
Sing of the brightest and fairest!
Sing for His grace may be thine.

2 After the likeness of Jesus,
Daily with sinners to meet,
Ne’er with a stain on the garments,
Full of a purity sweet. [Chorus]

3 After the likeness of Jesus,
Doing the Father’s own will;
Seeking to know of His wisdom,
Law of our God to fulfil. [Chorus]

4 After the likeness of Jesus,
Loving, and gentle, and kind,
Strong in resisting the evil,
Firmness and sweetness combined. [Chorus]
