I Would Be Like Jesus

This is a good hymn for me to think about today. I had a very discouraging day, during which I was reminded that I really wasn’t like Jesus at all at various times in my past. I wish I could somehow reach back to my younger self and tell her to be more like Jesus and less like a jerk.

I Would Be Like Jesus

James Rowe

Earthly pleasures vainly call me;
I would be like Jesus;
Nothing worldly shall enthrall me;
I would be like Jesus.

Refrain
Be like Jesus, this my song,
In the home and in the throng;
Be like Jesus, all day long!
I would be like Jesus.

He has broken every fetter,
I would be like Jesus;
That my soul may serve Him better,
I would be like Jesus.

Refrain

All the way from earth to glory,
I would be like Jesus;
Telling o’er and o’er the story,
I would be like Jesus.

Refrain

That in Heaven He may meet me,
I would be like Jesus;
That His words “Well done” may greet me,
I would be like Jesus.

Refrain
