Oh, more like You I long to be
Love as You love, so true, so free
Forgiving all, so tenderly
Yes, more like You, Lord, let me be.

To be like You - my heart's desire
Ignite in me Your holy fire
Please, cleanse me now oh Purifier
To be like You, Lord, I aspire.

To see like You - I long to see
The best in all - oh can it be
To see their need just like you see?
To see like You, Lord, is my plea.

Instill in me Your servant heart
Your humbleness, oh Lord, impart
All pride and self, please, let depart
And set my course, Lord, by your chart.

And may I ever seek the lower seat
Oh may I never grieve Your Paraclete
Oh may I ever, Lord, sit at Your feet
And may I ever see Your grace complete.

Amen. Beautifully written.

(Now as I hear this bell tolling softly for another, it says to me, "Thou must die.")
