Verse 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!

Verse 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!

Verse 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!

Verse 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!
