- The more I learn about Jesus,
The more I know He loves me;
His love is greater and stronger
Than human love can be.
The more I live in His presence,
The more His trueness appears,
The more Iím learning to trust Him,
Through all the changing years.
- I long for greater compassion,
I would more sympathy show,
And be more tender and holy,
More of His fullness know.
I would be gentle and lowly,
Display His love so divine,
And have submission and meekness,
And more of His life in mine.
- The more with Him in communion,
The nearer heaven I rise;
And sweeter far is our union
Than any human ties.
I thirst for more of His Spirit,
His will to work in my soul:
I want to be in His image,
While ceaseless ages roll.
