Representative Text

1 More of Thyself in me, my Father,
Less of the world in me;
More of Thy grace for daily living,
That Christ my all may be.

2 More of Thy pow’r for use in service,
Less of myself, I pray;
More of Thy patience and endurance,
More like Thee, Lord, each day.

3 More on Thy love and Thy compassion,
Less on myself to lean;
More of Thy willingness to suffer,
That Christ may e’er be seen.

4 More trust in Thee when sorely tempted,
Less on myself rely;
More on Thee lean to keep from falling,
Ever to feel Thee nigh.

5 More like Thyself each day, each moment,
Less like the world I’d be.
This is my pray’r, my God, my Father,
Ever to be like Thee.
