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 am 64 years old and am blessed to be recently rediscovering the Lord. A vaguely remember songs my grandmother taught me from my young childhood. I've remembered this simple melody and the first two lines of this song for decades, but only your hymnal. net site has allowed me to find again the blessings of the Lord I was presented with as a very young girl.

God bless you and may your offerings be remembered and help others in their love to he Lord. I would say again, "thank you", but I can only be furthered awed by the amazing glory of God which reaches back into my childhood wishes and comes back to bless me through your beautiful website. God bless you!

This hymn has influenced children for Christ more than any other. Written by Anna Bartlett Warner in 1860. Miss Warner wrote this text along with her sister Susan as part of one of the best-selling novels of the day titled “Seal and Say” which Susana authored. The novel is not well remembered but the poem by one of the characters Mrs. Linden as she comforts Johnny Fax who is dying has become a favorite around the world.

Anna and Susan were highly educated and deeply devoted Christian young women who lived all of their lives along the Hudson River in New York. Their home was located near West Point Academy and for a number of years they gave Sunday School classes to young cadets.

After the death of their father, a well known New York lawyer, the Warner sisters were left with a meager inheritance so they turned to literary writing. Susan became known for several of her works including the book, “The Wide, Wide World, ” considered to be a bestseller of its time after “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. Anna, though not as well known as Susan, wrote a number of novels under the pseudonym “Amy Lothrop” and published two collections of verse, “Hymns of the Church Militant, ” 1858, and “Wayfaring Hymns, ” 1869.

“Jesus Loves Me” soon became popular and spread to other countries. Many stories by missionaries of the universal appeal this hymn had with children in every culture. It has been reported that it was appropriated by other religious sects.

Dr. William B. Bradbury, the composer of the music for this text, was the contributor of the early gospel hymnody of this country. He was born in York, Maine, on October 6, 1816. When he was young he moved to Boston, where he became associated with Lowell Mason, called the father of American public school and church music. Bradbury served as choir director and organist in several Baptist Churches in the East, where became well-known for his work with children. One of the highlights of his career were his annual Music Festivals, where more than a thousand children would gather, all dressed alike, and sing many of the songs he composed. Soon after Bradbury began to teach, write and publish volumes of music. He composed the music for “Jesus Loves Me” in 1861 especially for Anna Warner’s text and personally added the chorus to the four stanzas. It appeared in its present form in 1862 in his hymnal publication, “The Golden Shower. ”

Other hymns by William Bradbury include “He Leadeth Me, ” “Just As I Am, ” and “Sweet Hour of Prayer. ”
