1 I want to know more about Jesus,
More about his love
That made me free,
That gave to me
A way to heav’n above.

Refrain:
I want to know more about Jesus,
My Jesus who died for me;
I want to know more about Jesus,
Who died to set me free.

2 I want to know more about Jesus,
More about his will;
I would be true
In all I do;
His wishes I’d fulfill. [Refrain]

3 I want to know more about Jesus,
More about his word,
Its message sweet
Gives joy complete
With love my heart is stirred. [Refrain]
