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

About This Song

“I know I struggle with feeling like I’m not worthy or good enough. I have my good days, my bad days just like everybody else. For me, I wanted everything to be pointed back to Him. The song’s not about me. It’s about each day that I see myself going through life, are there things at the end of the day that I could’ve done better? Are there things at the end of the day that could’ve made me a little more like Jesus?” – Zach Williams
