Oh! to be like Thee, blessed Redeemer,
This is my constant longing and prayer;
Gladly I’ll forfeit all of earth’s treasures,Jesus,
Thy perfect likeness to wear.
Oh! to be like Thee, oh! to be like Thee,
Blessed Redeemer, pure as Thou art;
Come in Thy sweetness, come in Thy fullness;
Stamp Thine own image deep on my heart.
Oh! to be like Thee, full of compassion,
Loving, forgiving, tender and kind,
Helping the helpless, cheering the fainting,
Seeking the wand’ring sinner to find.
Oh! to be like Thee, lowly in spirit,
Holy and harmless, patient and brave;
Meekly enduring cruel reproaches,
Willing to suffer, others to save.
Oh! to be like Thee, Lord, I am coming,
Now to receive th’ anointing divine;
All that I am and have I am bringing,Lord,
from this moment all shall be Thine.
Oh! to be like Thee, while I am pleading,
Pour out Thy Spirit, fill with Thy love,
Make me a temple meet for Thy dwelling,
Fit me for life and Heaven above.
-Thomas O. Chisholm
We sang this beautiful hymn a few Sunday's ago, and I thought I would share it. :) By the way, does anyone have a favorite Song/Hymn Book that you use? My favorite is probably Hymns of Faith published by Tabernacle Publishing Company. :)

Great prominence is given in the Word of God to the earthly life of our Lord Jesus Christ. The four Gospels, which are the record of His earthly life, contain eighty-nine chapters out of two hundred and sixty chapters in the New Testament. The fact that His life is set forth so prominently in the Scriptures is sufficient reason to believe that God would have every believer meditate upon the matchless life of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will teach us much needed truth by a prayerful consideration of the life our Lord.
In the book, Changed by Beholding Him, the writer encourages us to focus our attention on Christ, to meditate on Him, and to continually behold His glory in the Word of God. By doing, we will be transformed into His image, changed into His likeness.
