More about Jesus

Lyrics: Eliza E. Hewitt
Music: John R. Sweney

More about Jesus would I know,
More of His grace to others show;
More of His saving fullness see,
More of His love who died for me.

More about Jesus let me learn,
More of His holy will discern;
Spirit of God, my teacher be,
Showing the things of Christ to me.

More about Jesus in His Word,
Holding communion with my Lord;
Hearing His voice in ev'ry line,
Making each faithful saying mine.

More about Jesus on His throne,
Riches in glory all His own;
More of His Kingdom's sure increase;
More of His coming, Prince of Peace.

Chorus:
More, more about Jesus,
More, more about Jesus;
More of His saving fullness see,
More of His love who died for me.

Stephasnie asked me to find a recording of this on Y-tube.
I might add, this is one of my favourite Hymns. It is so true.

Glad you liked it. :) Did you find a Youtube link? Be sure and share it!

When my kids get older I'd like to record some of these with my family and post them. :)

Since you liked this one, I've got another hymn coming up with a similar theme: "More like Jesus" (as opposed to "More about Jesus"). But first I'm going to finish posting all these Eliza Hewitt hymns. I looked her up on an unfamiliar hymn I sang Sunday night, thinking her name sounded familiar, and I was surprised how many wonderful hymns I knew had been written by her, including one of my all time favorites: Give Me Thy Heart. So it prompted my first "series" on this blog. :)
