More about Jesus

by Pastor Clinton Macomber

   

Verses that support the message of the hymn:

Philippians 3:10: “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.”

Eliza Hewitt wrote the poem and her friend, John Sweney wrote the music for her hymn. The hymn first appeared in 1887 in the song book: Glad Hallelujahs, edited by William Kirkpatrick and John Sweney.


More about Jesus would I know, more of His grace to others show, more of His saving fullness see, more of His love who died for me.

More about Jesus let me learn, more of His holy will discern; Spirit of God my teacher be, showing the things of Christ to me.

More about Jesus—in His Word holding communion with my Lord, hearing His voice in ev’ry line, making each faithful saying mine.

More about Jesus on His throne, riches in glory all His own, more of His kingdom’s sure increase, more of His coming—Prince of Peace.

Refrain
More, more about Jesus, more, more about Jesus; more of His saving fullness see, more of His love who died for me.
