I Shall Be Like Him (Poem by Martha Snell Nicholson)


I Shall Be Like Him by Martha Snell Nicholson

What can it mean, to be like Him? 
I, to be like my dear Lord?
I could not believe it, had I not
The promise of His precious Word!

I, With my follies and failures,

I, with my weakness and sin, 
To be like the Lord in His beauty, 
Perfect without and within? 

O, I am weary with waiting, 

Sick of this old self of mine. 
Come quickly, Lord Jesus, come quickly, 
And give me a spirit like Thine!
