More Like Jesus Would I Be

More like Jesus would I be,
Let my Savior dwell with me;
Fill my soul with peace and love;
Make me gentle as a dove;
More like Jesus, while I go,
Pilgrim in this world below;
Poor in spirit would I be;
Let my Savior dwell in me.

If He hears the ravens cry,
If His ever watchful eye
Marks the sparrows when they fall,
Surely He will hear my call:
He will teach me how to live;
All my sinful thoughts forgive;
Pure in heart I still would be;
Let my Savior dwell in me.

Holding fast to my savior's side
By His grace, there I shall abide
With His love, precious, strong, and true
Through my own life shining through

More like Jesus when I pray,
More like Jesus day by day,
May I rest me by His side,
Where the tranquil waters glide.
Born of Him through grace renewed,
By His love my will subdued,
Rich in faith I still would be;
Let my Savior dwell in me.

More like Jesus would I be
