Like Jesus

I want to be like Jesus, I want to heed His word

Author: Kate Ulmer
Tune: [I want to be like Jesus] (Williams)
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I want to be like Jesus,
I want to heed His Word,
To tell the sweet, old story
To those who’ve never heard.

’Twas Jesus came to save us,
For us He bled and died;
I want to tell the story,
Yes, tell it far and wide.

2 I want to work for Jesus,
His cheerful servant be;
To show I truly love Him
Who did so much for me. [Refrain]

3 I want to live with Jesus,
In His bright home above,
Where all are pure and holy,
Where all is perfect love. [Refrain]
