Keith Green – I Want To Be More Like Jesus lyrics

As each day passes by,
I feel my love run dry.
I get so weary, worn,
And tossed round in the storm.
Well I'm blind to others' needs,
And I'm tired of planting seeds.
I seem to have a wealth,
Of so many thoughts about myself.

I want to, I need to, be more like Jesus.
I want to, I need to, be more like Him.
Our Father's will was done,
By giving us His Son,
Who paid the highest cost,
To point us to the cross.
And when I think of Him,
Taking on the whole world's sin,
I take one look at me,
Compared to what I'm called to be.

I want to, I need to, be more like Jesus.
I want to, I need to, be more like Him.
Remember, there's no greater love,
Than to lay down your life for a friend.

The end of all my prayers,
Is to care like my Lord cares.
My one and only goal,
His image in my soul.
Yes my weakness is revealed,
But by His stripes I'm healed.
He's faithful and He's true,
To complete the work he begins in you.

    Not only does the bible say only the father in heaven will know the exact time he will send jesus back to retrieve his forlowels also, did you all realize that this harold camping guy has had false predictions before? I guess the last one was in 1994? He also says that the holy spirit left (was removed from)us in 1988! We all know this is false! Please guys, don't be so easily deceived. It only hurts your faith when you believe lies they don't happen! I want to see harolds face on sunday.
