No. 132

No title is given, but I know this as “More Love to Thee”.

Verse 1:
More love to Thee, Oh 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!

Mrs. Elizabeth Prentiss
