Text: Elizabeth P. Prentiss, 1818-1878
Music: William H. Doane, 1832-1915
Tune: MORE LOVE TO THEE, Meter: 64.64.66.44

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! 

3.	Let sorrow do its work, come grief and pain; 
	sweet are thy messengers, sweet their refrain, 
	when they can sing with me: 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!
