Jesus Loves Me

My girls ask me to sing this song all the time.  It is one of the most profound hymns I am aware of, and as one who very much loves music but has no skill for it I appreciate that this is one song we can sing together despite my lack of skill.

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 loves me—He who died
Heaven’s gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.
