Sung during the Sunday worship at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London (Spurgeon’s).

Hymn 449 from our hymn book, Psalms & Hymns of Reformed Worship.

MORE gratitude give me;
more trust in the Lord;
More zeal for His glory;
more hope in His Word;
More tears for His sorrows;
more pain at His grief;
More meekness in trial;
more praise for relief.

More holiness give me;
more strivings within;
More patience in suffering;
more sorrow for sin;
More faith in my Saviour;
more sense of His care;
More joy in His service;
more purpose in prayer.

More purity give me;
more strength to o’ercome;
More freedom from earth-stains;
more longings for home;
More fit for the kingdom,
more used would I be;
More blessèd and holy;
more, Saviour, like Thee.
