Jesus loves me, this I know

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.
Jesus, take this heart of mine;
Make it pure and wholly Thine.
Thou hast bled and died for me;
I will live henceforth for Thee.
  Yes, I love Jesus.
Yes, I love Jesus.
Yes, I love Jesus.
In prayer I tell Him so.

I too learned this as a child; I am 71 years old and still love to sing it. I love this verse too:

Luke 18:16 (KJV)

But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Here are two more verses from my hymn book.

Jesus loves me! He Who died,

Heaven's gate to open wide;

He will wash away my sin,

Let His little child come in.

Jesus loves me! He will stay

Close beside me all the way;

Thou hast bled and died for me,

I will henceforth live for Thee.

My mother taught me this song as soon as I could utter my first words, and to this day, in times of great stress, it is the song that I sing.



I love this song.

I just love this old song. my parents taught it to me when I was a small child and I am now an adult, (almost 60) & I still enjoy singing this song.

I have to memorize this song when about twelve years old in my country church. Now I love this song day by day. So I'm weak but He is strong. Amen!



It reminds me of the good old days when I was in primary school in my village. We used to sing this song and it is still in my memory. I am happy to find it online and to sing it again and sing it for my children too.

When I sing this song it makes my feel good inside. When I carried my one and only child I sang this song all the time rubbing my belly. Now she is 6 years old and I still sing this hymn to her. She said mommy you always sing this song, sing a different song. But I know she likes it because she always falls asleep. The Holy Spirit is the best Comfortor that God has given to man. Thank You, Jesus!

My mother sang this to me when I was a little girl, and she still does - and I'm now 41! I sing it to my little girl who is 7 1/2 yrs old. Thank you so much for this incredible website! I can't wait to teach my daughter so many old hymnals and allow it to breathe peace into my soul. My 78 yr old mother misses the hymnals from her youth, and this is a wonderful opportunity for her, thank you! ;-)

It is a delight to find this song on the web. I was taught that song when I was 2 y.o., and sung it in church with the choir. I'm now 65 y.o., and that song is still in my spirit. Thank you!

I love this song. Finding the music online means that even with my terrible singing voice I can try and sing as part of my prayer time! Thank you so much for putting it freely online.
