185. Jesus Loves Me

1 Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

2 Jesus loves me! This I know,
As He loved so long ago,
Taking children on His knee,
Saying, "Let them come to Me." [Refrain]

3 Jesus loves me! He will stay
Close beside me on my way.
He's prepared a home for me,
And someday His face I'll see. [Refrain]
