Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

More and More

Full Text

1 We have heard of Jesus' love,
How he left his home above;
We would hear it o'er and o'er,
We would learn yet more and more.

Learning more and more,
As we daily older grow;
Laying by, in store,
Help us, Lord, thy love to know.

2 Many lessons from the Word,
From our teachers we have heard;
But we only know in part,
More of truth must fill the heart. [Chorus]

3 Joyful lips have sung his praise
Thro' the happy passing days;
Still we come, as oft before,
Christ our Saviour to adore. [Chorus]

4 Learning more of wisdom's way,
Loving more and more each day;
May we grow in heav'nly grace
Till we see our Saviour's face. [Chorus]
