1. I will love Jesus and serve Him, for see
How the dear Savior has watched over me!
How He has guarded and guided my way!
How He has kept me, by night and by day.

Him will I love, and His will I be,
All because He has first loved me;
Him will I love, and His will I be,
All because He loves me.

2. I will love Jesus and learn of His will,
Trusting Him ever, through good and through ill;
Seeking His blessing, where’er I may be,
Knowing He cares for the sparrows and me. [Refrain]

3. I will love Jesus, and, sure of His love,
I shall be safe as the blessèd above.
Oh! When He calls me to glory on high,
How we will praise Him, the angels and I! [Refrain]
