03 Jesus Loves Me Too Still I Know

First : the original children's hymn - Jesus Loves Me


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.

 

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.

What a stupid silly thing
To impress a child to sing

It's so abstract you'd think they'd lack
Hope to recall this lyric back.
And can you honestly believe
He loves them when they are me ?

Jesus loves me, this I know

Yet I am tossed too and fro

Little ones to him belong

But then we grow up oh so wrong.

 

Yes, Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me

To see him right I must be wrong

 

Not a child and not a man

But be a woman: Yes I Can !

 

I endure like history

How and Why's a mystery

I know alone I can do it

Make me take help it turns to bad

 

I know that I'm capable

But people claim I'm unstable

They then cannot co-operate

'cuz to the gate I'm always late .

 

So I must give up my trust

In all that has sustained me thus .

And I find that all along

People have claimed what he has done .

 

Now I know this song I sing

Is not some cute kids rhyming thing

I smile when out of mouths of babes

Comes the words of how they're saved .

 

But as a cute kids rhyming thing

Word play can say anything

You know that you are condemned

You're gonna' die and live again .
