458 ~ More Love to Thee



1

More love to Thee, O Christ!
More love to Thee;
Hear Thou the prayer I make
On bended knee.
This is my earnest plea,
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee!
More love to Thee!


2

Once earthly joy I craved,
Sought peace and rest;
Now Thee alone I seek,
Give what is best.
This all my prayer shall be,
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee!
More love to Thee!


3

Let sorrow do its work,
Send grief or pain;
Sweet are Thy messengers,
Sweet their refrain,
When they can sing with me,
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee!
More love to Thee!


4

Then shall my latest breath
Whisper Thy praise;
This be the parting cry
My heart shall raise,
This still its prayer shall be:
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee!
More love to Thee!
