Because he loved me so

Full Text

1 Why did my Savior come to earth,
And to the humble go?
Why did He choose a lowly birth?
Because he loved me so!

He loved me so,
He loved me so,
He gave His precious life for me, for me,
Because, He loved me so.

2 Why did He drink the bitter cup
Of sorrow, pain and woe?
Why on the cross He lifted up?
Because He loved me so! [Chorus]

3 And now He bids me look and live,
And by His grace to know,
A home in glory He will give,
Because He loved me so! [Chorus]

4 Till Jesus comes, I'll sing His praise,
And then to glory go;
And reign with Him thro' endless days,
Because He loved me so. [Chorus]
