327. 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.

2 Jesus loves me! This I know,
as he loved so long ago,
Taking children on his knee,
saying, "Let them come to me." [Refrain]

3 Jesus loves me! Still today,
walking with me on my way,
Wanting as a friend to give
light and love to all who live. [Refrain]

1 Cristo me ama, bien lo sé.
Su palabra me hace ver.
Que los niños, son de aquél
Quien es nuestro amigo fiel.

Sí, Cristo me ama,
Sí, Cristo me ama,
Sí, Cristo me ama,
La Biblia dice así.
