More like Jesus, more like Jesus I would be;
More like Jesus in submission,
Like Him trustful, unrepining,
Patient like Him, like Him in humility,

Refrain

More and more, more and more,
More and more like Jesus every day.
More and more, more and more,
More like Jesus every day.

More like Jesus, more like Jesus would I be;
More like Jesus, true and steadfast,
Like Him striving, ever doing,
Earnest like Him, like Him in fidelity.

Refrain

Blessèd Jesus, come and make me all like Thee;
All like Thee, O blessèd Jesus,
In the glory of Thy manhood,
In the beauty of Thy spotless purity.

Refrain
