Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
