about

This song expresses my personal desire and daily prayer; of all the things I want to be in this life, I really just want to be like Him. He did everything right, and led us by His example. We have the same Spirit living in us, so it is possible to at least become much more like Him than we are naturally—we just have to desire it above all things.

lyrics

Take these things that hinder me,
Take my pride and vanity,
Help me understand You,
Teach me how to love You,
And won't You help me to be more

Chorus:
I wanna be more, I wanna be more like You, Lord;
I wanna be more, I need to be more like You

Take my self and hypocrisy,
Let me live in simplicity,
Help me burn my bridges,
And live the Word within me,
Lord, please help me to be more

I wanna be more, I wanna be more like You, Lord;
I wanna be more, I need to be more like You
I wanna be more, I wanna be more like You, Lord;
I wanna be more, I need to be more like You

Take my heartache and emptiness,
Deliver me from all worldliness,
Take the chains that bind me,
Put Your arms around me,
Then please help me to be more

I wanna be more, I wanna be more like You, Lord;
I wanna be more, I need to be more like You
I wanna be more, I wanna be more like You, Lord;
I wanna be more, I need to be more like You
