Jesus Loves Me This I Know

Do you remember this song? Do you ever go around and just hum it to your self or actually sing it out loud? "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." What a precious little song that just brings peace to your soul when it is sung. Well this past week I got an email that just really touched my heart. I remember singing Jesus Love Me as a child, and even I sing it to my grandchildren. Thinking it is only a "child" song, this version or add on or other verse (don't know which is true) just really, I don't know , just touched me. I hope you enjoy it as I did. Have a wonderful day and week....because there is peace in knowing Jesus Loves You.


JESUS LOVES ME
Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow

Though my sight is growing dim,

Still He bids me trust in Him.


(CHORUS)


YES, JESUS LOVES ME.. YES, JESUS LOVES ME..

YES, JESUS LOVES ME FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.


Though my steps are oh, so slow,

With my hand in His I'll go

On through life, let come what may,

He'll be there to lead the way.

(CHORUS)

When the nights are dark and long,

In my heart He puts a song.

Telling me in words so clear,

'Have no fear, for I am near.'

(CHORUS)

When my work on earth is done,

And life's victories have been won.

He will take me home above,

Then I'll understand His love

(CHORUS)

I love Jesus, does He know?

Have I ever told Him so?

Jesus loves to hear me say,

That I love Him every day.

(CHORUS)

This song always takes me back to my Vacation Bible School days in rural Tennessee. I like your own version, too. Happy day;)

I was always proud that I could sing that and not miss a word, as a child.
I like this version for my stage of life now.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you... I, too, learned 'Jesus Loves Me' when I was little bitty. I like this version for my age today.

Thanks.

Isn't this the most beautiful, simple statement? Even little children can understand this truth: Jesus loves me, this I know. For the Bible tells me so! Your version for older folks is cute! Thanks for sharing.

I also got this last week. It is so cute and so fitting for those of us who aren't quite as perkey as we used to be.

Ohhhhh Lisaaaaaa, where are you?

You are having one of those thingees I have sometimes. Not interested and nothing to say. And it seems I have too much to do to stop and blog.

And I've been getting bored with some(not all)of the blogs I read.
