588. Jesus Loves Me

1 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.

2 Jesus loves me! He who died
Heaven's gates to open wide.
He has washed away my sin,
Lets His little child come in. [Refrain]

1 Cristo me ama, bien lo sé;
Su palabra me hace ver
Que los niños, son de aquél
Quien es nuestro amigo fiel.

Sí, Cristo me ama;
Sí, Cristo me ama;
Sí, Cristo me ama;
La Biblia dice así.

2 Cristo me ama, me salvó,
en la cruz pro mí murió:
mi pecado perdonó;
vida eterna me donó. [Estribillo]
