I am so glad that our Father in heav’n

1
I am so glad that our Father in heav’n
Tells of His love in the Book He has giv’n;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see:
This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me.
  I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
  Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me;
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
    Jesus loves even me.
2
Though I forget Him and wander away,
Still He doth love me whenever I stray;
Back to His dear loving arms would I flee,
When I remember that Jesus loves me.
3
Oh, if there’s only one song I can sing,
When in His beauty I see the great King,
This shall my song in eternity be:
“Oh, what a wonder that Jesus loves me.”

This lively little melody is still a welcome choice for teachers of small children, when both a good tune and a gospel message are needed for Sunday school students. It has been as widely sung in Scotland as in America. Mr. Phillip P. Bliss, hearing one day the words of the familiar choir—

O, how I love Jesus,

—suddenly thought to himself, —

“ I have sung long enough of my poor love to Christ, and now I will sing of His love for me. ” Under the inspiration of this thought, he wrote-–

I am so glad that our Father in heaven

Tells of His love in the book He has given’

Wonderful things in the Bible I see,

This is the dearest—that Jesus loves me.

Both words and music are by Mr. Bliss

The history of modern Sunday-school hymnody—or much of it— is so nearly identified with that of the Gospel Hymns that other selections like this song, might be appropriate here, where the series of sacred songs receives special recognition.
