Lyrics

Are you trust­ing Je­sus, all along the way?
Does He grow more pre­cious to your heart each day?
Are you His dis­ci­ple? Test His Word and see,
He will give the Spi­rit more abun­dant­ly.

Refrain

More abun­dant­ly, more abun­dant­ly,
That they might have life and more abun­dant­ly;
More abun­dant­ly, more abun­dant­ly,
That they might have life and more abun­dant­ly.

For His match­less fa­vor, mag­ni­fy the name
Of our gra­cious Sav­ior who from glo­ry came;
Let the saints adore Him for this won­drous Word,
Sealing our re­demp­tion thro’ the crim­son flood.

Refrain

Come to Him be­liev­ing, heark­en to His call;
All from Him re­ceiv­ing, yield to Him your all;
Jesus will ac­cept you when to Him you flee;
He will grant His bless­ing more abun­dant­ly.
