More Love to Thee

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE DETAILS.

I posted this hymn a couple of years ago while in the middle of my diagnosis and God has brought it back to mind as a result of some recent events. It is one of many great hymns which have carried me through times of uncertainty. I love the lyrics because they change my perspective of how I relate to my circumstance and my God. My prayer for you is if you are in uncertain times, that you will come to know the peace that surpasses all understanding by placing your faith in the prince of peace.

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!

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!

Let sorrow do its work, come grief or 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!

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!

    I wait for five months for you to post something (not a book review) and it’s a re-post! Well, I hope you and your family are okay.

    • Ryan, how have you been? Are you finished with seminary yet? It’s nice to hear from you again.
