113. 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.

The following two verses are copyright:

2 Jesus loves me! This I know,
as he loved so long ago,
taking children on the knee,
saying, "Let them come to me." (Refrain)

3 Jesus loves me! still today,
walking with me on the way,
wanting as a friend to give
light and love to all who live. (Refrain)
