Like you (dedicated to L.D.)

Put on your new nature, and be renewed
as you learn to know your Creator and become like him
(Colossians 3:10; NLT).

1. Immanuel, I love you.
And, Lord, you love me, too.
Help me to walk with you all day,
So I can learn from you.

2. Jesus Christ, I love you
And, Lord, you love me, too.
May I rejoice throughout today,
Then I’ll grow more like you.

3. Lamb of God, I love you,
And, Lord, you love me, too.
Help me to pray both night and day,
Then I’ll become like you.

4. Son of Man, I love you
And Lord, you love me too.
May I give thanks, whatever comes,
Then I’ll be more like you.

5. Son of God, I love you,
And, Lord, you, love me too.
May I love you in everyone –
Then I will be like you.
