Representative Text

1 More of Jesus, more of Jesus,
‘Tis the Christian’s yearning cry;
More of Jesus, more of Jesus,
Only He can satisfy.

2 More of Jesus, more of Jesus,
While I tread earth’s weary ways;
More of Jesus, more of Jesus,
Till in Heav’n I hymn His praise.

3 More of Jesus, more of Jesus,
O to feel His love each hour!
More of Jesus, more of Jesus,
O to realize His power!

4 More of Jesus, more of Jesus,
In my weakness and my pain;
More of Jesus, more of Jesus,
He can turn my loss to gain.

5 More of Jesus, more of Jesus,
Sorely do I need His grace;
More of Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
When shall I behold his face?
