1. Earthly pleasures vainly call me, I would be like Jesus; Nothing worldly shall enthrall me, I would be like Jesus.

Refrain: Be like Jesus, this my song, In the home and in the throng; Be like Jesus, all day long! I would be like Jesus.

2. He has broken ev’ry fetter, I would be like Jesus; That my soul may serve Him better, I would be like Jesus.

3. All the way from earth to glory, I would be like Jesus; Telling o’er and o’er the story, I would be like Jesus.

4. That in heaven He may meet me, I would be like Jesus; That His words “Well done” may greet me, I would be like Jesus.
