Full Text

1. Less of self and more of Jesus,
Less of man and more of God;
Earnest prayer of many workers
In the vineyard of the Lord.
Less of self and more of Jesus
Girds the soul with holy pow’r,
Brightens life, and sweetens labor,
In the use of every hour.

Refrain
Less of self and more of Jesus;
Less of man and more of God;
Earnest prayer of many workers
In the vineyard of the Lord.

2. Less of self and more of Jesus,
Pleads the saint in earnest prayer,
For he labors souls to rescue
From the tempter’s cruel snare.
Self concealed, faith works its wonders,
Trusts the merit of the blood;
Claims for Christ the sinner’s ransom,
Leads the penitent to God. [Refrain]

3. Less of self and more of Jesus,
As in social life we meet;
May the beauties of salvation
Others lead to Jesus’ feet.
Not in vain exalt we Jesus,
Not in vain hide self away;
Great the joy and sweet the pleasure
Heaven grants us on our way. [Refrain]
