    So lowly and so meek,
    For no one marked an angry word
    That every heard Him speak.

    Verse 2
    I want to be like Jesus,
    So frequently in prayer;
    Alone upon the mountain-top,
    He met His Father there.

    Verse 3
    I want to be like Jesus,
    I never, never find
    That He, though persecuted, was
    To any one unkind.

    Verse 4
    I want to be like Jesus,
    Engaged in doing good,
    So that of me it may be said,
    `She hath done what she could.`

    Verse 5
    I want to be like Jesus,
    Who sweetly said to all,
    `Let little children come to Me:`
    I would obey the call.

    Verse 6
    But oh, I'm not like Jesus,
    As any one may see;
    Then, gentle Saviour, send Thy Grace,
    And make me like to Thee.
