More love to Thee O Christ More love




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!


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!


Let sorrow do its work,
come 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!


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!


---Alternative verses---


Let sorrow do its work,
send grief and pain;
Sweet are Thy messengers,
sweet their refrain,
When they can sing with me:
|: More love, O Christ, to Thee; :|
more love to Thee!
