#323: More Love to Thee

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

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 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, 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.
