555. More Love to Thee, O Christ

1 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!

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!

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!
