While struggling thro’ this vale of tears,
I want more faith in Jesus;
Amid temptations, cares and fears,
I want more faith in Jesus.

Refrain

I want more faith, I want more faith,
A clearer, brighter, stronger faith in Jesus;
And this my cry, as time rolls by,
I want more faith in Jesus.

To war against the foes within
I want more faith in Jesus;
To rise above the powers of sin
I want more faith in Jesus.

Refrain

To brave the storms that here I meet
I want more faith in Jesus;
To rest confiding at His feet
I want more faith in Jesus.

Refrain

I want a faith that works by love,
A constant faith in Jesus;
A faith that mountains can remove,
A living faith in Jesus.

Refrain
