249. 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.

Refrain:
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 will wash away my sin,
let his little child come in. [Refrain]

3 Jesus loves me! loves me still,
though I'm very weak and ill;
from his shining throne on high,
comes to watch me where I lie. [Refrain]

4 Jesus loves me! he will stay
close beside me all the way;
when at last I come to die
he will take me home on high. [Refrain]
