Lyrics

More like Thee, O Sav­ior, let me be,
More like Thee from day to day;
Never let me from Thy footsteps stray,
Keep me in the narrow way.

Refrain

More like Thee, more like Thee,
More like Thee, O Christ, like Thee;
By Thy grace, O let me day by day
Grow more and more like Thee.

More like Thee, O Sav­ior, let me be,
Pure without, and pure within;
Keep me ever from the ways of sin,
I the crown of life would win.

Refrain

More like Thee, O Sav­ior, let me be,
All my pilgrim journey thro’;
Meek and lowly, ever kind and true,
Like Thy­self in all I do.
