1 I love my Saviour dear,—
How much can never tell;
He comes so very near,
And with him all is will;
I love my Saviour dear,
How much can never show;
He makes my pathway clear,
And ever loves me so.

Refrain:
Jesus loves me so,
Jesus loves me so,
I will love him more and more,
For Jesus loves me so.

2 I love his own dear word,
The book of books to me,
In ev’ry land is heard
Its gospel full and free.
I love his own dear word,
With love ‘tis all aglow,
My very heart is stirr’d,
For Jesus loves me so. [Refrain]

3 I love his holy day,
The day he calls his own,
That keeps me on the way
To my celestial home,
I love his holy day,
That gives me grace to grow,
And ever watch and pray,
For Jesus loves me so. [Refrain]

4 I love the Sunday-school,
Oh, who can stay away?
Its teachings be my rule
Of life from day to day,
I love the Sunday-school;
Oh, would that all might know
Its joys so rich and full,
For Jesus loves me so. [Refrain]
