If I am faithful to Jesus my King

Representative Text

1 If I am faithful to Jesus my King,
I shall be like Him, be like Him, I know;
When in His presence His praises I sing,
I shall be like Him, I know.

Chorus:
I shall be like Him, be like Him, I know,
(I shall be like Him,
I shall be like Him,
I shall be like Him, I know;)
If I abide
(If I abide,
If I abide)
Ever close to His side,
(Ever close to His side,
Ever close to His side,)
I shall be like Him,
I shall be like Him, I know. (be like Him, I know)

2 If I make known all His glorious love,
I shall be like Him, be like Him, I know;
If I am true till He calls me above,
I shall be like Him, I know. [Chorus]

3 If I but trust Him till glory be won,
I shall be like Him, be like Him, I know;
If I press onward till duty is done,
I shall be like Him, be like Him, I know; [Chorus]

4 If on the Crucified One I believe,
I shall be like Him, be like Him, I know;
Clad in His beauty His blessing receive,
I shall be like Him, I know. [Chorus]
