Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Thro’ all the changing scenes of life,
I want to be more like Jesus!
In strength or weakness, peace or strife,
I want to be more like Jesus!

Refrain:
More like Jesus, more like Jesus
All along the way,
I want to be more like Jesus.

2 As from His word I daily read,
I want to be more like Jesus!
For grace and patience is my need,
I want to be more like Jesus! [Refrain]

3 When crosses weigh my spirit down,
I want to be more like Jesus!
And when, by faith, I view my crown,
I want to be more like Jesus! [Refrain]

4 When by temptations tossed about,
I want to be more like Jesus!
When sinking in the sea of doubt,
I want to be more like Jesus! [Refrain]

5 While I can sing, my song shall be:
I want to be more like Jesus!
And thro’ a long eternity,
I want to be more like Jesus! [Refrain]
