2895. I Love Jesus

1. I love Jesus, for He saved my soul;
From His cross the tides of mercy roll;
Long and far He sought me, when astray;
Now, He leads me in His own right way.

I love Jesus; He’s my King;
Of His mercy I will sing;
I will follow in His paths of light,
Till I see Him in His glory bright.

2. I love Jesus, for He’s always near,
Ever ready with a word of cheer;
Ev’ry day, and ev’ry passing hour,
I will trust Him for His keeping pow’r. [Refrain]

3. I love Jesus when the joy-beams glow;
Love Him, when the stormy tempests blow;
I will praise Him while the ages roll;
Hallelujah! for He saved my soul. [Refrain]
