583. God Loves Me Dearly

1 God loves me dearly,
grants me salvation,
God loves me dearly,
loves even me.

Therefore I'll say again:
God loves me dearly,
God loves me dearly,
loves even me.

2 I was in slav'ry,
sin, death, and darkness;
God's love was working
to make me free. [Refrain]

3 He sent forth Jesus,
my dear Redeemer,
he sent forth Jesus
and set me free. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, my Savior,
himself did offer;
Jesus, my Savior,
paid all I owed. [Refrain]

5 Now I will praise you,
O Love eternal;
I will praise you
all my life long. [Refrain]
