Representative Text

1 I would be like Thee, Jesus, my Lord,
Gentle and loving, trusting Thy word;
Lowly in spirit, pure in my heart,
Living each day from all evil apart.

Refrain:
I would be like Thee, filled with Thy grace,
Till in Thy beauty I look on Thy face;
I would be like Thee, lost in Thy love,
I would be like Thee in heaven above.

2 I would be like Thee, humble in mind,
Growing more earnest, faithful and kind;
Seeking for souls, to save them from sin,
And for Thy kingdom their service to win. [Refrain]

3 I would be like Thee, speaking the truth,
Giving my life to God in my youth;
Listening for Thy message to me,
Spending my best days in working for Thee. [Refrain]

4 I would be like Thee when I am tried,
Crushing out sin, temptation, and pride;
All Thy commandments would I obey,
Learning Thy will, Thee to follow alway. [Refrain]
