303. Jesus loves me! — this I know

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.

Refrain:
Yes, Jesus loves me,
yes, Jesus loves me,
yes, Jesus loves me —
the Bible tells me so.

2 Jesus loves me! — he who died
heaven's gate to open wide;
he will wash away my sin,
let his little child come in. [Refrain]

3 Jesus loves me! He will stay
close beside me all the way,
till he takes his little one
to be with him near his throne. [Refrain]
