MORE ABOUT JESUS

  1. The author of this hymn text, Eliza Edmunds Hewitt, was an invalid for an extended period of her life. 

    Out of this experience, she developed an intimate relationship with God and the Scriptures and a desire to share her feelings with others through writing.  She became a prolific author of children’s poetry and Sunday school literature.

    In later years, Eliza’s physical’s condition improved and she was able to be even more active in her Christian ministries. She was a close friend of Fanny Crosby.  “More About Jesus” was first published in 1887.

    Miss Hewitt’s prayer—“Spirit of God, my Teacher, show the things of Christ to me”–was beautifully answered in her many Christ-centered hymns.

  2. More About Jesus Would I Know

  3. (1) 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, more, about Jesus,

    More, more, about jesus;

    More of His saving fullness see,

    More of His love who died for me.

          (2) 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.

          (3) More about Jesus; in His word,

    Holding communion with my Lord;

    Hearing His voice in every line,

    Making each faithful saying mine.

          (4) 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.
