More Love to Thee, O Christ 229
(MORE LOVE TO THEE 6, 4, 6, 4, 6, 6, 4)
Elizabeth P. Prentiss,1869 W. Howard Doane,1868
 
  1. More love to thee,
    O Christ, More love to thee;
    Hear thou the prayer I make On bend - ed knee,
    This is my ear - nest plea,
    More love, O Christ, to thee,
    More love to thee, More love to thee
  2. Once earth - ly joy I craved,
    Sought peace and rest;
    Now thee a - lone 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 sor - row do its work,
    Send grief and pain;
    Sweet are thy mes - sen - gers, Sweet their re - frain,
    When they can sing with me,
    More love, O Christ, to thee,
    More love to thee, More love to thee
  4. Then shall my lat - est breath
    Whis - per thy praise;
    This be the part ing 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. A -men.
