MORE LOVE TO THEE, O CHRIST

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 Chris, to thee;
more love to thee,  more love to thee!

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!

Let sor-row do its work, come 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!

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!

Him by Elizabeth P. Prentiss 1869
