1 I love him because I know him,
I feel him ever standing at my side;
When tempted, he’s always with me,
He still will love, whate’er betide.

I love him, my Redeemer,
He is so loving, so tender and so true;
I love him, O yes, I love him,
And, best of all, he loves me, too.

2 I love him because I trust him,
Thro’ days of joy or moments filled with grief;
When prostrate I fall before him,
His Word alone can give relief. [Refrain]

3 I love him because he suffered
And hung upon the cross of Calvary,
And, dying, he sealed my pardon
With his own blood upon the tree. [Refrain]

4 I’ll love him till, crossing Jordan,
My feet shall stand upon the golden shore,
And then, in my home eternal,
I’ll love and praise him evermore. [Refrain]
