1 Oh, to be like Him,
Tender and kind,
Gentle in spirit,
Lowly in mind;
More like to Jesus,
Day after day,
Filled with His Spirit,
Now and alway.

Yes, to be like Him,
We must abide
Near to Our Saviour,
Close to His side.

2 Oh, to be like Him,
Quick to obey,
Childlike and truthful,
Ready to say,
“I and my Father
Purpose have one,
Thine, not my will,
Ever be done.” [Refrain]

3 Oh, to be like Him,
Tempted in vain,
Dwelling with sinners,
Yet without stain;
Giving our life-work
Sinners to save,
Triumphing over
Death and the grave. [Refrain]
