Jesus Loves Me (Hymn)

Jesus Loves Me
Anna Bartlett Warner (1860)

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

Refrain
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.”

Refrain

Jesus loves me still today,
Walking with me on my way,
Wanting as a friend to give
Light and love to all who live.

Refrain

Jesus loves me! He who died
Heaven’s gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

This might be the most famous Christian song out there.  It’s usually thought of as a children’s song, but the message in it is a great one.  We do know that Jesus loves us and we know it because the Bible tells us so.  He did bleed and die for us and we should live for Him.  We shouldn’t relegate this one to a children’s church service, but should remember it and make it our own.

    • Often the most important truths are the ones that God makes the simplest. “Jesus loves me.” That’s as simple as you get and as important for us to remember as anything. It’s always a good thing to be reminded of. Have a blessed New Year!
