More Love to Thee

  • More Love to Thee 2542:38

More love to thee, O 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! 

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! 

Let sorrow do its work, come 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!
