1 O to be more like Jesus—Jesus who died for me,
This is my heart’s great longing, this is my earnest plea.
Simply to be like Jesus—patient, and kind, and true;
Fill’d with His love, sent from above,
Then I His works would do.
More, more like Jesus
I would ever grow;
More of His love—constantly prove—
More of His likeness show.
2 O to be more like Jesus—more of His likeness bear;
E’en tho’ the world forsake Him I would His burden share.
After the pain and sorrow, there shall be sweet release,
Then to abide close to His side,
Ever to dwell in peace. [Refrain]
3 Yes, I would be like Jesus—like Him in word and deed;
Seeking some other’s comfort, filling another’s need,
Comforting those in sorrow—heavy in heart and sad,
Then they would see Jesus in me,
And He would make them glad. [Refrain]
4 Hear me, O blessed Saviour, answer my earnest plea,
Help me to be more humble, patient, and kind, like Thee.
Help me to win the lost ones, back to the narrow way—
Help me to prove, more of Thy love—
Dwelling in Thee each day. [Refrain]
