O to Be Like Thee!
- O to be like Thee! blessed Redeemer
This is my constant longing and prayer;
Gladly I'll forfeit all of earth's treasures
Jesus Thy perfect likeness to wear.
- O to be like Thee! full of compassion
Loving, forgiving, tender and kind
Helping the helpless, cheering the fainting
Seeking the wand'ring sinner to find.
- O to be like Thee! lowly in spirit
Holy and harmless, patient and brave
Meekly enduring cruel reproaches
Willing to suffer others to save.
- O to be like Thee! Lord, I am coming
Now to receive th'a-nointing divine
All that I am and have I am bringing
Lord, from this moment all shall be Thine.
- O to be like Thee! while I am pleading
Pour out Thy Spirit, fill with Thy love;
Make me a temple meet for Thy dwelling
Fit me for life and heaven above.
O to be like Thee! O to be like Thee,
Blessed Redeemer, pure as Thou art!
Come in Thy sweetness, come in Thy fullness;
Stamp Thine own image deep on my heart.
