361. 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 In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I'll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright;
and singing Thy praises, before Thee I'll bow;
if ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.
