Full Text

1 Jesus, Savior, great Example,
Pattern of all purity,
I would follow in thy footsteps,
Daily growing more like thee.

Refrain:
More like thee, more like thee;
Savior, this my constant prayer shall be—
Day by day, where'er I stay,
Make me more and more like thee.

2 Lest I wander from thy pathway,
Or my feet move wearily,
Savior, take my hand and lead me,
Keep me steadfast: more like thee. [Refrain]

3 When temptations fiercely lower,
And my shrinking soul would flee,
Change each weakness into power,
Keep me spotless: more like thee. [Refrain]

4 When around me all is darkness,
And thy beauties none may see,
May thy beams, O Glorious Brightness,
In effulgence shine thro' me. [Refrain]

5 When death's cold and chilling finger
Leaves its impress on my brow,
May thy life, within me swelling,
Keep me singing then as now. [Refrain]
