Representative Text

1 I long to be more like my Saviour,
I long his sweet presence to know;
To walk in the light of his counsel,
That daily like him I may grow.

Refrain:
I long to be more like the Saviour,
To dwell in his love so divine;
And, oh, I may tell him my longing,
And know that the blessing is mine.

2 I long to be more like my Saviour,
He ever is waiting to bless;
He bindeth up earth’s broken-hearted,
And comforteth all in distress. [Refrain]

3 I long to be more like my Saviour,
To know of his wonderful peace
That giveth the calm in the sorrow,
From worry it giveth release. [Refrain]
