Verse 1
I want to be like Jesus,
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.
