633. Jesus loves me, this I know

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 gate 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 e where I lie. [Refrain]

4 Jesus loves me, he will stay
Close beside me all the way;
If I love him when I die
He will take me home on high. [Refrain]
