1 Jesus, I love Thee, Thou art to me
Dearer than ever mortal can be;
Jesus, I love Thee, Savior divine,
Earth has no friendship constant as Thine.
Tenderly folded, safe on Thy breast,
There be my refuge, there let me rest.
2 Full of compassion, loving and mild,
Thou art my father, I am Thy child;
Thou wilt forgive me, when I am wrong;
Thou art my comfort, Thou art my song.
Blessèd Redeemer, precious to me,
Draw me still closer, closer to Thee.
3 Jesus, I love Thee, reign in my heart,
Oh, may Thy Spirit never depart.
Jesus, I love Thee, yes, Thou art mine—
Living or dying, still I am Thine.
Jesus, I love Thee, Thou art to me
Dearer than ever mortal can be.
