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

More like Jesus

I would be more like Jesus (Hallgreen)

Author: F. Hallgreen
Tune: [I would be more like Jesus]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. I would be more like Jesus
Every day;
I would be true and faithful
All the way;
I would know what to sing and
What to say,
I would know how to listen
How to pray.

So I'll watch and I'll labor
And I'll pray;
By his grace I will follow
All the way;
Then with joy I shall meet him
Trials o'er
And with him reign forever,

2. I would be kind and gentle,
Meek and mild;
I would be pure and loving
His dear child;
I would do good to others,
As he did;
I would shed joy and sunshine,
In him hid. [Chorus]

3. I would work in his vineyard
Every day;
Patient, trusting, obedient,
Come what may;
I would go where he leads me,
By his grace,
Till in glory I see him
Face to face. [Chorus]
