133. My Jesus, I Love Thee

1 My Jesus, I love thee, I know thou art mine.
For thee all the follies of sin I resign.
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art thou.
If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now.

2 I love thee, because thou hast first loved me,
and purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree.
I love thee for wearing the thorns on thy brow.
If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now.

3 In mansions of glory and endless delight
I’ll ever adore thee in heaven so bright.
I’ll sing with the glittering crown on my brow.
If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now.
