    With conviction

    1. I’m trying to be like Jesus,

    I’m following in His ways.

    I’m trying to love as He did,

    in all that I do and say.

    At times I am tempted

    to make a wrong choice,

    but I try to listen

    as the still small voice

    whispers,

    (Chorus)

    2. I’m trying to love my neighbor,

    I’m learning to serve my friends.

    I watch for the day of gladness

    when Jesus will come again.

    I try to remember

    the lessons He taught,

    then the Holy Spirit

    enters into my thoughts,

    saying:

    (Chorus)

    Chorus

    “Love one another as Jesus loves you.

    Try to show kindness in all that you do.

    Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought,

    for these are the things Jesus taught.” (2. I’m taught.”)
