Lyrics: Eliza. E. Hewitt
Music: Peter P. Bilhorn

O tell me more of Christ, my Saviour,
On this glad theme dwell o’er and o’er;
His boundless grace, his saving favor,
His precious name, O tell me more!

Refrain:
O tell me more!
So much I need
His pow’r to keep,
His hand to lead;
O tell me more of him I love,
Until I see his face above.

O tell me more of love’s sweet story,
If you would cheer and comfort me;
How Jesus wept, the King of glory,
Those tender tears of sympathy.

O tell me more! How waves of sorrow
Shall hear his voice say, “Peace, be still;”
How after night, bright dawns the morrow,
To those who trust his blessed will.

O tell me more! And I, repeating
The happy news, shall spread the joy;
Come, blessed Lord, thy work completing,
Till songs of praise our lips employ.

More Like The Master

Lyrics and Music: Charles H. Gabriel

More like the Master I would ever be,
More of His meekness, more humility;
More zeal to labor, more courage to be true,
More consecration for work He bids me do.

Refrain:
Take Thou my heart, I would be Thine alone;
Take Thou my heart, and make it all Thine own;
Purge me from sin, O Lord, I now implore,
Wash me and keep me Thine forevermore.

More like the Master is my daily prayer;
More strength to carry crosses I must bear;
More earnest effort to bring His kingdom in;
More of His Spirit, the wanderer to win.

More like the Master I would live and grow;
More of His love to others I would show;
More self-denial, like His in Galilee,
More like the Master I long to ever be.
