599. 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! This I know,
As He loved so long ago,
Taking children on His knee,
Saying, “Let them come to Me.” [Refrain]

3 Jesus loves me still today,
Walking with me on my way,
Wanting as a friend to give
Light and love to all who live. [Refrain]

4 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]

5 Jesus loves me! He will stay
Close beside me all the way;
Thou hast bled and died for me,
I will henceforth live for Thee. [Refrain]
