Verse 1: 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.
Verse 2: 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.
Verse 3: O to be like Thee! Lowly in spirit, holy and harmless, patient and brave; meekly enduring cruel reproaches, willing to suffer, others to save.
Verse 4: O to be like Thee! Lord, I am coming, now to receive the anointing divine; all that I am and have I am bringing; Lord, from this moment all shall be Thine.
Chorus: O to be like Thee! O to be like Thee! Blessed Redeemer, pure as Thou art; come in Thy werrtness, come in Thy fullness; stamp Thine own image deep on my heart.
