Jesus Loves Me (Hymn)

Jesus Loves Me
Anna Bartlett Warner (1862)

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

Chorus:
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.
Jesus loves me! This I know,
As He loved so long ago,
Taking children on His knee,
Saying, “Let them come to Me.”
Chorus
Jesus loves me when I’m good,
When I do the things I should,
Jesus loves me when I’m bad,
Though it makes Him very sad.
Chorus
Jesus loves me still today,
Walking with me on my way,
Wanting as a friend to give
Light and love to all who live.
Chorus
Jesus loves me! He who died
Heaven’s gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.
Chorus
Jesus loves me! Loves me still
Tho’ I’m very weak and ill;
That I might from sin be free
Bled and died upon the tree.
Chorus
Jesus loves me! He will stay
Close beside me all the way;
Thou hast bled and died for me,
I will henceforth live for Thee.
Chorus

Sometimes the simplest songs are the most powerful.  I think that is the case with this one.  “Jesus loves me, this I know, For the Bible tells me so.”  How true is that?  He loves me and I know it because of what the Bible says.  “Thou hast bled and died for me, I will henceforth live for Thee.”  That should be our attitude every day of our lives.  There are so many great truths in this song.  It’s sad that it is often relegated to “only” a children’s song.  We adults would do well to sing it often and pay attention to the message!

  1. Thank you, Ben!

    I am about three years old and belting this out at the top of my lungs. Our Sunday School class is performing at our Sunday night service.

    Flash forward, many, many years later … I am beginning to understand what it means to be loved unconditionally despite the traps I’ve fallen into and the years I’ve spent in the desert.

    Much has changed over the years, but one thing remains constant …”Yes! Jesus loves ME!”

    God bless you much. May you feel His love in a new and beautiful way today.

    Grateful,
    ann
