343. Earthly Pleasures Vainly Call Me

1 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.

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

3 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)

4 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)
