I Want To Be Like Jesus

Written by Elton Smith and Gilberto Barreto

Here is a simple song for children. I wrote the music and different lyrics for my children. Then Gilberto and I rewrote the lyrics to be more meaningful and uplifting. - Elton


La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la,
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la,
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la,

I want to be like Jesus
and live each day for Him.
I want to be like Jesus
and keep my heart from sin.

So lovingly he watches me
and teaches me what I should be.
So joyfully I give my heart
and live each day for Him.

(Raise key and repeat verse)

(Raise key again and repeat verse)

And live each day for Him.
And live each day for Him.
