Representative Text

1 Make me like Thee, O Lord,
Cleansed in Thy precious blood,
O’er time’s rough sea;
Tho’ loud the breakers roar,
My heart be tempted sore,
Thee would I still implore,
Make me like Thee.

2 Thy gracious love impart,
Pour on my thirsty heat
Thy Spirit free;
Thou who dost deign to bless,
All who their sins confess,
Thy Spirit I’d possess,
Make me like Thee.

3 Tho’ fondest friends may die,
Tho’ cherished hopes may fly,
Thine let me be;
O hear me while I pray,
Purge all this dross away,
In me thy pow’r display,
Make me like Thee.

4 When life’s last hour is fled,
When deaths dark vale I tread,
Thee would I see;
Fall at thy glorious feet,
Lost in thy love so sweet,
And feel my soul complete,
Savior like Thee.
