          Earthly pleasures vainly call me;
          I would be like Jesus;
          Nothing worldly shall enthrall me;
          I would be like Jesus.

            Chorus
            Be like Jesus, this my song,
            In the home and in the throng;
            Be like Jesus all day long!
            I would be like Jesus.

          He has broken ev'ry fetter,
          I would be like Jesus;
          That my soul may serve Him better,
          I would be like Jesus.

            Chorus
            Be like Jesus, this my song,
            In the home and in the throng;
            Be like Jesus all day long!
            I would be like Jesus.

          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.

            Chorus
            Be like Jesus, this my song,
            In the home and in the throng;
            Be like Jesus all day long!
            I would be like Jesus.

          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.

            Chorus
            Be like Jesus, this my song,
            In the home and in the throng;
            Be like Jesus all day long!
            I would be like Jesus.
