Why am I so happy and free from all sin

Full Text

1 Why am I so happy and free from all sin?
Because my dear Savior so loves me.
Why do I rejoice and am happy within?
Because my dear Savior so loves me.

Refrain:
'Tis Jesus, my Savior, all blessings bestows;
'Tis Jesus relieves me from all of my woes,
My sins He forgives, for my weakness He knows,
Because my dear Savior so loves me.

2 When I was a sinner why was I His choice?
Because my dear Savior so loves me.
When I'm in affliction, why do I rejoice?
Because my dear Savior so loves me. [Refrain]

3 And still I rejoice, when much older I'm grown,
Because my dear Savior so loves me.
My poor heart rejoices with pleasures unknown,
Because my dear Savior so loves me. [Refrain]
