Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

He loves me so

Representative Text

1 I know that mamma loves me,
Because she tells me so;
She never yet deceived me,
And never will, I know;
And so I know that Jesus
Loves little ones like me,
And that He watches o’er them,
Wherever they may be.

He loves, He loves me so,
He loves, He loves me so;
I know He came to save me,
Because He loves me so.

2 The happy birds in springtime,
Are singing all the day;
The pretty flowers blooming,
In beautiful array;
And all they say to me is,
That “God is ever good!”
They never speak untruly,
They would not if they could. [Refrain]

3 I read of sprites and brownies,
And of the fairies too,—
But oh, there is a story
That’s ever sweet and new!
It’s called the “Old, old story
Of Jesus and His love,”
And of the many mansions
He has prepared above. [Refrain]

4 It makes me very happy,—
This story sweet and old,
Because it grows the sweeter
Each time I hear it told.
Although I often wonder
Why He remembers me,
I know that Jesus loves me,
And will my Savior be. [Refrain]
