More love to Thee, O Christ,
More love to Thee!
Hear Thou the prayer
I make On bended knee;
This is my earnest plea:
Refrain:
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
|: More love to Thee! :|

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:
Refrain:

3. Let sorrow do its work,
Send grief and pain;
Sweet are Thy messengers,
Sweet their refrain,
When they can sing with me:
Refrain:

4. Then shall my latest breath
Whisper Thy praise;
This be the parting cry
My heart shall raise;
This still its prayer shall be:
Refrain:
