1 I want to be more like Jesus,
And follow Him day by day;
I want to be true and faithful,
And ev'ry command obey.

More and more like Jesus,
I would ever be; (I ever would be;)
More and more like Jesus,
My Savior who died for me.

2 I want to be kind and gentle,
To those who are in distress;
To comfort the brokenhearted,
With sweet words of tenderness. [Refrain]

3 I want to be meek and lowly,
Like Jesus, our Friend and King;
I want to be strong and earnest,
And souls to the Savior bring. [Refrain]

4 I want to be pure and holy,
As pure as the crystal snow;
I want to love Jesus dearly,
For Jesus loves me, I know. [Refrain]
