Like Jesus

We'll try to be like Jesus

Published in 11 hymnals

Representative Text

1 We'll try to be like Jesus,
The children's precious Friend,
Far dearer than a mother,
A sister, or a brother,
He'll love us to the end,
He'll love us to the end.

Chorus:
We'll try to be like Jesus,
We'll try to be like Jesus,
We'll try to be like Jesus,
The children's precious Friend.

2 We'll try to be like Jesus,
In body and in mind;
For pure he was and holy,
In temper meek and lowly,
And to poor sinners kind. [Chorus]

3 We'll try to be like Jesus,
And do our Father's will;
We'll seek His strength in weakness,
We'll bear the cross in meekness,
Up Calv'ry's rugged hill. [Chorus]

4 We'll try to be like Jesus,
And when we come to die,
At His right hand in glory
We'll sing the blessed story
The ransomed sing on high. [Chorus]
