1 The One who once walked on the waters,
The Master of earth and of sea,
The Christ who spoke peace to the tempest,
Is the very same one that loves me.

This very same Jesus loves me,
This very same Jesus loves me,
The Christ who could walk on the waves of the sea,
Is the very same one that loves me.

2 The One who could heal ev’ry sickness,
And cause the blind sinner to see,
The Christ who bro’t Life to the dying,
Is the very same one that loves me.

This very same Jesus loves me,
This very same Jesus loves me,
The Christ who could cause the blind sinner to see,
Is the very same one that loves me.

3 And now He is living in glory,
Some day His dear face I shall see;
The Christ whose return I am waiting,
Is the one that has always loved me.

This Jesus has always loved me,
This Jesus has always loved me;
The Christ whose dear face I am waiting to see,
Is the one that has always loved me.
