1 While struggling through this vale of tears
I want more faith in Jesus;
Amid temptations, cares and fears,
I want more faith in Jesus.

I want more faith, I want more faith,
A clearer, brighter, strong faith in Jesus;
And this my cry, as time rolls by,
I want more faith in Jesus

2 To war against the foes within
I want more faith in Jesus;
To rise above the powers of sin
I want more faith in Jesus. [Refrain]

3 To brave the storms that her I meet
I want more faith in Jesus;
To rest confiding at his feet
I want more faith in Jesus. [Refrain]

4 I want a faith that works by love,
A constant faith in Jesus;
A faith that mountains can remove,
A living faith in Jesus. [Refrain]
