1 When I think of Jesus’ love,
Jesus, blessed Jesus;
How He came from Heav’n above,
Then do I love Jesus.
When I know He died for me,
On the hill of Calvary,
Died to set my spirit free,
Then do I love Jesus.

2 When I feel my sins forgiv’n,
Jesus, blessed Jesus;
When I read or sing of Heav’n,
Then do I love Jesus;
When He bids me come and rest,
On His kind and loving breast,
When my longing heart is blest,
Then do I love Jesus.

3 When He sends His Spirit down,
Jesus, blessed Jesus;
When He points to harp and crown,
Then do I love Jesus;
When my trials all are o’er,
When I reach the other shore,
There to dwell forevermore,
Then will I love Jesus.
