316. I Love Jesus

1 I love Jesus, for He saved my soul;
From His cross the tides of mercy roll;
Long and far He sought me, when astray;
Now He leads me in His own right way.

Refrain:
I love Jesus; He’s my King;
Of His mercy I will sing;
I will follow in His paths of light,
Till I see Him in His glory bright.

2 I love Jesus, for He’s always near,
Ever ready with a word of cheer;
Every day, and every passing hour,
I will trust Him for His keeping pow’r. [Refrain]

3 I love Jesus when the joy-beams glow;
Love Him, when the stormy tempests blow;
I will praise Him while the ages roll;
Hallelujah! for He saved my soul. [Refrain]
