Jesus, My Savior, I Love Thee

Representative Text

1 Jesus, my Saviour, I love Thee;
All unto Thee I resign;
O, it is joy, it is glory,
Jesus, to know Thou art mine.

O Jesus, dear Jesus, I love Thee,
And ever Thy name I'll adore;

All Thy commands I'll obey;
And if in aught I should fail Thee;

3 Jesus, my Saviour, I love Thee;
Keep me, O keep me each day,
Since Thy good Spirit has sealed me
In Thee for aye and for aye. [Refrain]
