Verse 1
So many conflicts in this world
Bright days but not enough light
We God's people need to walk in Christ
We need to put on the armor
Of God,
To stand against the wiles
Of the enemy
We need to fight

Chorus
I wanna be like you Lord
I wanna walk, I wanna talk and I wanna move like you Lord
I need more of you Lord
So I can shine my light
Please help us Lord
Please change, use and make us like you
So this world can be different
When we shine our light

I wanna be like you Lord
I wanna talk, I wanna talk, I wanna talk like you
I wanna move, I wanna move, I wanna move like
So I can shine my light (2x)

Verse 2
We need to be an ambassador
Of God we need to spread his word
So that people can come to Christ
I can't do the same things that they do
I can't
I gotta be a saint
So they can take me on
And try to change

Chorus
I wanna be like you Lord
I wanna walk, I wanna talk and I wanna move like you Lord
I need more of you Lord
So I can shine my light
Please help us Lord
Please change, use and make us like you
So this world can be different
When we shine our light

I wanna be like you Lord
I wanna talk, I wanna talk, I wanna talk like you
I wanna move, I wanna move, I wanna move like
So I can shine my light (2x)

Bridge
Can't lie, can't curse, no pride, no gossip
I gotta shine my light
Bye Bye fleshly desires
I don't need you (2x)

Chorus
I wanna be like you Lord
I wanna walk, I wanna talk and I wanna move like you Lord
I need more of you Lord
So I can shine my light
Please help us Lord
Please change, use and make us like you
So this world can be different
When we shine our light

Yeah (yeah) Ooh (ooh) (8x)

Chorus
I wanna be like you Lord
I wanna walk, I wanna talk and I wanna move like you Lord
I need more of you Lord
So I can shine my light
