Lyrics: Verse 1: <br/> <br/>Oh, Christ shall my example be, <br/>Both now and through eternity. <br/>His simple life, though from above, <br/>Doth teach us be humble and love. <br/> <br/>And Christ did grow from grace to grace, <br/>As God our Father He obeyed. <br/>His earthly parents He did show <br/>Respect and honor here below. <br/> <br/>Verse 2: <br/> <br/>A life of challenge filled with trial, <br/>Yet Christ with courage did prevail. <br/>Over sorrow and temptation great, <br/>Christ overcame when He was tried. <br/> <br/>Christ gave the glory and honor <br/>To God above in His splendor. <br/>Oh may my life say like the Son. <br/>Oh God our Father, thy will be done! <br/> <br/>Verse 3: <br/> <br/>Beloved Savior, I do plead, <br/>Please help me in my hour of need. <br/>For Satan seeks to tempt me now, <br/>My weakness use o’er me for pow’r. <br/> <br/>Oh Lord please now my strength renew; <br/>From thee I ever learn anew. <br/>I’ll follow thy example sure <br/>In faith, love, and devotion true. <br/> <br/>Chorus: <br/> <br/>I turn my heart in love, <br/>To Christ our Lord above. <br/>I shall be His disciple; <br/>His example follow. <br/> <br/>I take His name upon me <br/>And witness to the end, <br/>I shall remember always <br/>Christ our Lord and friend. <br/>
