10867. 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—loves me still,
Though 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,
Then His little child will take
Up to Heaven for His dear sake. [Refrain]
