272. 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, 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, loves me still,
When I’m very weak and ill;
From His shining throne on high,
Comes to watch me where I lie. [Refrain]

4 Jesus loves me! He will stay
Close beside me all the way;
If I love Him, when I die
He will take me home on high. [Refrain]
