Lyrics

With Jesus I would ever be,
His matchless name adore;
He’s done so very much for me,
I want to love Him more.

Refrain

I want to love Him more,
I want to love Him more,
I want to love Him more,
I do, I do, I do;
I want to love Him more,
I want to love Him more,
He’s done so much for me.

He died upon the cruel tree,
Our load of guilt He bore;
He suffered shame for you and me,
I want to love Him more.

Refrain

His children He will not forsake,
When troubles press them sore;
But in their souls sweet peace awakes,
I want to love Him more.

Refrain

O Prince of life, sweet Prince of peace,
Who dwelt on earth below,
My faith in Him will never cease,
I want to love Him more.
