603. 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 still today,
walking with me on my way,
wanting as a friend to give
light and love to all who live. [Refrain]

4 Jesus loves me! He will stay
close beside me all the way;
if I love Him, when I die
He will take me home on high. [Refrain]
