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-I-mage deep on my heart.
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 sinner to find.
O to be like thee in spirit
Holy and harmless patient and brave enduring cruel
Reproaches willing to suffer others to save.
O to be like thee I am coming
To receive the anointing divine all that I am
And have I am bringing Lord from this moment all shall be thine.
