I want to be more like Je­sus,
And follow Him day by day;
I want to be true and faithful,
And every command obey.


More and more like Je­sus,
I would ever be;
More and more like Je­sus,
My Sav­ior who died for me.

I want to be kind and gentle,
To those who are in distress;
To comfort the broken hearted
With sweet words of tenderness.


I want to be meek and lowly,
Like Je­sus, our friend and king;
I want to be strong and earnest,
And souls to the Sav­ior bring.


I want to be pure and holy,
As pure as the crystal snow;
I want to love Je­sus dearly,
For Je­sus loves me, I know.
