218. 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.

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 take this heart of mine,
Make it pure and wholly thine;
On the cross you died for me,
I will try to live for thee. [Refrain]
