Representative Text

1 When I think of my Savior's great love,
In coming from Heaven above,
To die on the tree
For a sinner like me,
I am sure that He loves even me.

I am sure that He loves even me,
I am sure that He loves even me;
And His love is so sweet,
Makes my joy so complete
When I think how He loves even me.

2 When I think of the thorns on His brow,
Seems as if I can see Jesus now,
As He suffered for me,
That my soul might be free:
I am sure that He loves even me. [Refrain]

3 When I think how He saves me from sin,
Though often ungrateful I've been,
My vow I renew,
"to be faithful and true;"
I am sure that He loves even me. [Refrain]
