Jesus loves us (Teske)

Full Text

1. Jesus loves us,
Bends above us;
And the tenderness supreme,
Lasts forever,
Fails us never,
Lights us with its blessed beam.

2. For 'tis Jesus'
Love that frees us
From earth's night of death and sin;
Saying, "Mortal,
I'm the portal;
Come, poor sinner, enter in."

3. And the sweetness,
The completeness,
Of the shelter of his fold;
With its cheerings,
Its endearing
Light and love can ne'er be told.
