MORE LIKE THE MASTER

Charles H. Gabriel

More like the Master I would ever be
More of His meekness, more humility
More zeal to labour, more courage to be true
More consecration for work He bids me do

 

* Take Thou my heart, I would be Thine alone
Take Thou my heart, and make it all Thine own
Purge me from sin, o Lord, I now implore
Wash me and keep me Thine forevermore

 

More like the Master is my daily prayer
More strength to carry crosses I must bear
More earnest effort to bring His kingdom in
More of His Spirit, the wanderer to win

(back to *)

 

More like the Master I would live and grow
More of His love to others I would show
More self-denial, like His in Galilee
More like the Master I long to ever be
