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.

Refrain:
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]

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

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