More Holiness Give Me

More holiness give me, more striving within, more patience in suffering, more sorrow for sin; More faith in my Savior, more sense of His care, More joy in His service, more purpose in prayer.

More gratitude give me, more trust in the Lord, More pride in His glory, more hope in His Word; More tears for His sorrows, more pain at His grief, more meeknes in trial, more praise for relief.

More purity give me, more strength to o’ercome, more freedom from earth-stains, more longings for home; more fit for the kingdom, more used would I be, more blessed and holy, more Savior, like Thee.
