More About Jesus

Sometimes it's just impossible to improve on an old Gospel song.   This is one of them, I think.   This morning, the lines "Spirit of God, my teacher be, showing the things of Christ to me" were my heart's cry.

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 every 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.

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

~ Eliza Edmonds Hewitt (1851-1920)~


  1. Oh, I agree with you here...such wondrous words, such wondrous thoughts!

  2. Amen Rebecca,
    We can never learn to much about our sweet saviour and friend, or will be
    ever be able to learn all their is about Him, he is so infinite and Amazing!

    So how are ya?? Hope you have been having a very good week hon.
    Can't believe it is Friday already. Have a blessed weekend my
    friend, Nellie

  3. So far, two out of two blogs I have just read, have hymns posted....and I'm reading a book about hymn-writers and the stories behind the songs. ( I'm playing them on my flute if I don't know the tune. )
    The author of the book, Robert J. Morgan, said he was close to a breakdown, he took a walk and hymns kept coming to his mind....then he felt twinges of a *restored soul*. "What if I had not known those hymns?"

    1. It the risk of not being able to "reply" to the other comments, I HAVE to let you know how good it was to "see" you. I've missed you - and even went over to your blog to see if you've posted since the last time I visited. (You hadn't.)

      I don't think I knew that you played the flute! I sure wish I could play it! I especially love hearing it accompany a sweet song about Jesus!

  4. This will always be a favorite of mine not just for the awesome lyrics but because it was also a favorite of my mother's and I can remember her singing it! Precious!

  5. I like to read hymns as the Lord.

  6. I have heard or even thought about that hymn in so long. Thanks for triggering my memories of singing that song out of the old red hymnal in the little church I grew up in. :)

  7. That's beautiful Rebecca.
    Love Di ♥

  8. One of my favorite songs. ( I say that about a lot.) It's a good one to sing during my quiet time--it's my heart's desire.
