Representative Text

1 More like Thee, O Savior, let me be,
More like Thee from day to day;
Never let me from Thy footsteps stray,
Keep me in the narrow way.

Refrain:
More like Thee, more like Thee,
More like Thee, O Christ, like Thee;
By Thy grace, O let me day by day
Grow more and more like Thee.

2 More like Thee, O Savior, let me be,
Pure without, and pure within;
Keep me ever from the ways of sin,
I the crown of life would win. [Refrain]

3 More like Thee, O Savior, let me be,
All my pilgrim journey thro’;
Meek and lowly, ever kind and true,
Like Thyself in all I do. [Refrain]
