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, more like Jesus, I would ever be;
More, more like Jesus,
I want to be more like Jesus.

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

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

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

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
