More Like You, Jesus

 “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. “ Galatians 2:20

Lord Jesus, I pray

Make me more like You;

Inspire my thoughts,

Shape all I do.


Make my heart beat

One with Your will;

With Your Holy Spirit

My soul do fill.


On the highest mountain,

In the lowest valley,

Your radiant face

Always may I see.


Take my hands, Lord,

Your sacred work complete;

Upon Your pathway

Guide always my feet.


Take my lips,

Place on them Your song;

Take my heart too,

For with You I belong.


My eyes are Yours,

May they gleam with Your light;

May I see as You do,

Lord, take my sight.


My ears, they are Yours,

To hear only Your voice;

In the sound of Your call,

My spirit does rejoice.


My thoughts are Yours,

Jesus, fill my mind;

Make me to think on all

Good, pure and kind.


My spirit, Lord,

I give completely to You;

Do with me as You wish,

My spirit renew.


My life, my very life,

Is Yours to keep;

You are life itself

With sweet treasures deep.


Yea, Lord, take me,

Like You may I be;

I am Yours completely,

For all eternity.


Nothing for myself

Do I long anymore;

I live for You, my Jesus,

 It is You I adore.


And so I pray

Make me more like You;

You are the inspiration

For all I am and do.
