Lyrics

Grow like Jesus, He is love,
He is pure and holy;
You may be like Christ above,
Though your life be lowly.

Refrain

Grow like Jesus day by day,
He is ever near you;
Look to Jesus, watch and pray,
He delights to hear you.

Grow like Jesus, He is kind,
Patient, sweet, and tender;
None who seek Him fail to find,
He is our defender.

Refrain

Grow like Jesus, shine for Him,
As the stars forever;
Never let your light grow dim,
He will fail you never.
