457. 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, 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;
then his little child will take
up to heav'n for his dear sake. (Refrain)
