79. My Jesus, I Love Thee

1 My Jesus, I love Thee; I know Thou art mine.
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign.
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou:
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

2 I love Thee because Thou hast first loved me
And purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree.
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow:
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

3 I'll love Thee in life; I will love Thee in death
And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath.
And say when the death-dew lies cold on my brow,
"If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now."

4 In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I'll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright.
I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow,
"If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now."
