Less Like Me Lyrics

Oh I have days I lose the fight
Try my best but just don’t get it right

Well I talk a talk that I don’t walk
And miss the moments right before my eyes

Somebody with a hurt that I could have helped
Somebody with a hand that I could have held
When I just can’t see past myself
Oh Lord help me be

A little more like mercy
A little more like grace
A little more like kindness, goodness, love, and faith
A little more like patience
A little more like peace
A little more like Jesus
A little less like me

Yeah, there’s no denying I have changed
I’ve been changed from who I used to be
But even at my best I must confess
I need help to see the way you see

Somebody with a hurt that I could have helped
Somebody with a hand that I could have held
When I just can’t see past myself
Oh Lord help me be

A little more like mercy
A little more like grace
A little more like kindness, goodness, love, and faith
A little more like patience
A little more like peace
A little more like Jesus
A little less like me

Oh to feed the beggar on the street
Love to be your hands and feet
Freely give what I receive
Lord help me be I want a friendship first above all else
Love my neighbor as myself In the moments no one sees
Lord help me be
A little more living
Everything I preach
A little more like Jesus
A Little less like me

  • Nicole Fuss says:

    Aw yes…the battle within us. A reminder to be kind to others, to accept help and to yes, be more like Jesus. Many days when I say my prayers I scold myself for things I thought or said during the day. It’s a reminder to give it a better try tomorrow.

  • Tracy Swanson says:

    Honestly I haven’t heard this one yet, but I like it and think it would make a great Sunday worship song at church!!🥰
