Lyrics

Verse 1
I am praying, blessed Saviour,
To be more and more like Thee;
I am praying that Thy Spirit,
Like a dove may rest on me.

Chorus
Thou who knowest all my weakness,
Thou who knowest all my care,
While I plead each precious promise,
Hear, O hear and answer prayer.

Verse 2
I am praying, blessed Saviour,
For a faith so clear and bright
That its eye will see Thy glory
Thro’ the deepest, darkest night.

Verse 3
I am praying to be humbled
By the pow’r of grace divine,
To be clothed upon with meekness,
And to have no will but Thine.

Verse 4
I am praying, blessed Saviour,
And my constant pray’r shall be
For a perfect consecration
That shall make me more like Thee.
