Representative Text

1 I am praying, blessèd Saviour,
To be more and more like thee;
I am praying that thy Spirit
Like a dove may rest on me.

Refrain:
Thou who knowest all my weakness,
Thou who knowest all my care,
While I plead each precious promise,
Hear, O hear, and answer prayer!

2 I am praying to be humbled
By the power of grace divine;
To be clothed upon with meekness
And to have no will but thine.

3 I am praying, blessèd Saviour,
And my constant prayer shall be
For a perfect consecration
That shall make me more like thee.
