Jesus Loves Me

Anna Bartlett Warner Jesus Loves Me
The Bible tells us that God loves each and every one of us, despite our sins and faults. Be comforted by the simple lyrics of 'Jesus Loves Me' and remember that our Creator is almighty and all-loving. He is with us each step of the day and will never leave our side. We may be weak, but He is our strength.

Jesus Loves Me Lyrics

Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong.

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

Jesus loves me! This I know,
As He loved so long ago,
Taking children on His knee,
Saying, “Let them come to Me.”

Jesus loves me still today,
Walking with me on my way,
Wanting as a friend to give
Light and love to all who live.

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.

The Story Behind Jesus Loves Me

"Jesus Loves Me" is one of the most popular Christian hymns around the world, especially among children. Anna B. Warner first wrote the hymn as a poem. Anna's sister Susan requested a poem for a dying child and Anna wrote the beautiful words of Jesus Loves Me to bring comfort and peace.

Anna's poem appeared in a novel, Say and Seal, and was composed by William Bradbury in 1862.

"Jesus Loves Me," with its simple, direct message, is one of the first hymns missionaries teach to new converts. It was the favorite hymn of Francis Schaeffer, who recognized that, ultimately, intellectuals and children need the simple message of Jesus. Amy Carmichael, the Irish missionary to India, was converted after hearing this hymn at a children's mission in Yorkshire, England.

Very few things hurt worse than being misunderstood, especially when the one who misunderstands is someone very close to you. Whenever I face a situation like this, I want to get defensive. I want to explain myself.
