O how I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus

Representative Text

1 Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me.

2 How can you reject Him?
How can you reject Him?
How can you reject Him?
He shed His blood for you.

3 Will you not love Jesus?
Will you not love Jesus?
Will you not love Jesus,
When first He loved e'en you?

4 Come while He is waiting,
Come while He is waiting,
Come while He is waiting,
Ere He may turn from thee.

5 Call now upon Jesus,
Call now upon Jesus,
Call now upon Jesus,
He waits to hear you cry.

6 Now Jesus will save you,
Now Jesus will save you,
Now Jesus will save you,
Believe and you are free.

7 Go tell it to others,
Go tell it to others,
Go tell it to others,
That He can save them too.

8 Sing hallelujah,
Sing hallelujah,
Sing hallelujah,
To Jesus, Lord, and King.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
