Teton Music Pianos, Strings and Sheet Music

More Holiness, Give Me (SSA and organ)

SSA choir with organ and oboe (or flute or violin)

Arranged by Michelle Willis


This adaptation of Philip Paul Bliss's familiar hymn provides a delightful challenge for women's voices. The hemiola rhythms and free-flowing melodies in the oboe and piano give beautiful underscoring for the singers, which eventually grow into 5-part harmony. A thrill for the listener and performer alike!

Difficulty: Medium

Recommended Performance Time: 3'40"
Audio sample recorded by "We Also Sing" in the Salt Lake Tabernacle.




More holiness give me,
More strivings within,
More patience in suff'ring,
More sorrow for sin,
More faith in my Savior,
More sense of his care,
More joy in his service,
More purpose in prayer.

More gratitude give me,
More strivings within,
More pride in his glory,
More hope in his word,
More tears for his sorrows,
More pain at his grief,
More meekness in trial,
More praise for relief.

More purity give me,
More strength to o'ercome,
More freedom from earth stains,
More longing for home.
More fit for the kingdom,
More used would I be,
More blessed and holy-
More, Savior, like thee.
