          More love to Thee, O Christ, More love to Thee!
          Hear Thou the prayer I make on bended knee;
          This is my earnest plea:

            Chorus
            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:

            Chorus
            More love, O Christ, to Thee,
            More love to Thee,
            More love to Thee!

          Let sorrow do its work, Send grief and pain;
          Sweet are Thy messengers, Sweet their refrain,
          When they can sing with me,

            Chorus
            More love, O Christ, to Thee,
            More love to Thee,
            More love to Thee!

          Then shall my latest breath, Whisper Thy praise;
          This be the parting cry, My heart shall raise;
          This still its prayer shall be:

            Chorus
            More love, O Christ, to Thee,
            More love to Thee,
            More love to Thee!
