O to be like Him, tender and kind,
Gentle in spirit, lowly in mind;
More like to Jesus day after day,
Filled with His Spirit, now and alway.

Refrain

Yes to be like Him, we must abide
Near to our Savior, close by His side.

O to be like Him, quick to obey,
Childlike and truthful, ready to say,
I and My Father purpose have one,
Thine, not My will, ever be done.

Refrain

O to be like Him, tempted in vain,
Dwelling with sinners, yet without stain;
Giving our life work sinners to save,
Triumphing over death and the grave.

Refrain
