1 Jesus has promised my Shepherd to be,
That's why I love Him so;
And to the children He said, "Come to Me,"
That's why I love Him so.

Chorus:
That's why I love Him,
That's why I love Him,
Because He first loved me;
When I'm tempted and tried,
He is close by my side,
That's why I love Him so.

2 He the weak lambs to His bosom will take,
That's why I love Him so;
Never will He for a moment forsake,
That's why I love Him so. [Chorus]

3 He has in heaven prepared me a place,
That's why I love Him so;
Where I may dwell, by His wonderful grace,
That's why I love Him so. [Chorus]
