    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!
