I want to know more about Jesus, The Lamb

Representative Text

1 I want to know more about Jesus,
The Lamb who for sinners was slain,
Who died on the cross to redeem us,
But liveth forever again.

I want to know more about Jesus,
How he suffered and died on the tree;
I want to know more about Jesus,
And his mercy and pardon so free.

2 I want to know more about Jesus,
The source of that life-giving stream,
That flow'd once from Calvary's mountain,
The world from its sin to redeem. [Chorus]

3 I want to know more about Jesus,
As thro' this dark world I may go;
When sorrow and grief may confront me,
I want then my Saviour to know. [Chorus]

4 And when at the close of life's battles
I'm called to eternity's shore,
I'm sure I shall want to know Jesus,
Far better than ever before. [Chorus]
