More and More

Representative 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]
