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.
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.
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.
