Jesus Loves Me

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;Ephesians 3:17-18

Jesus loves me!  this I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to him belong, 
They are weak, but he is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me,
Yes, Jesus loves me,
Yes, Jesus loves me,
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! he who died,
Heaven's gates to open wide!
He will wash away my sin,
Let his little child come in.


Jesus loves me! loves me still,
Tho I'm very weak and ill;
From his shining throne on high,
Come to watch me where I die.


Jesus loves me! he will stay,
Close beside me all the way,
If I love him, when I die,
He will take me home on high.
