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.
