Representative Text

1 How I long to be like Jesus,
How I long to be like Jesus,
Doing good to all around me,
Wheresoe'er I go.

Chorus:
There no more to sever,
Dwell with him forever,
Joy there, like a river,
Shall forever flow.

2 How I long to be like Jesus,
How I long to be like Jesus,
Mild and patient, meek and lowly,
Wheresoe'er I go. [Chorus]

3 How I long to be like Jesus,
How I long to be like Jesus,
Kind, forgiving those who wrong me,
Wheresoe'er I go. [Chorus]

4 How I long to be like Jesus
How I long to be like Jesus,
Like my Saviour pure and holy,
Wheresoe'er I go. [Chorus]
