1 I am longing to know more of Jesus!
Oh, the charm of that wonderful name;
How it thrills me with heavenly visions,
When I think of His coming again!
I'm climbing the heights of the mountain,
For a view of its glories on high,
And to drink from its life-giving fountain,
Of the waters that never run dry.
2 I am longing to know more of Jesus!
Ah, the depths of His love is unknown,
For it found me a wandering sinner,
And reclaimed me and made me His own. [Chorus]
3 I am longing to know more of Jesus!
Oh, the pitiless death on the tree!
How it stirs me to deeper devotion
When I think how He suffered for me! [Chorus]
4 I am longing to know more of Jesus,
And the journey with Him I would go;
For I know I shall stand in His presence,
When my labors are ended below. [Chorus]Source: Victory Songs: For the Church, Sunday School and Evangelistic Services. #64
