I love to think of Jesus, when He was here on earth Upon a kingly mission, though of such humble birth; I love to hear the story told o’er and o’er again, About His death on Calv’ry, to ransom sinful men.
Refrain: Like Jesus, like Jesus, my loving, precious Friend.
I want to live like Jesus—holy, and pure, and true— That I may never fail to please Him in all I do; I want to be kindhearted and loving unto all, Be cheerful and contented, no matter what befall.
I want to speak like Jesus—all of my words to be A blessing and a joy to all who converse with me; I do not want to murmur, be fretful, or complain, Because each word of evil will leave a sinful stain.
I want to think like Jesus, only of what is pure, And while I think no evil I shall be kept secure; If all my words and actions, my heart and thoughts, are right, I know my life is pleasing each moment in His sight.
