I Would Like to Be Like Jesus

From the ‘Sing Young, Sing Joyfully’ collection

1. I would like to be like Jesus,

Gentle, loving, strong and true.

I would like to be like Jesus

And see God in me and you.

 

2. I would like to be like Jesus

When I’m happy, when I’m blue.

I would like to be like Jesus

In the things I say and do.

 

3. So I’ll walk the way of Jesus

In the presence of his friends,

Praising, praying, trusting Jesus

For the love which never ends.
