Jesus Loves Even Me

A wonderful children’s hymn. But so relevant, even to us all.

This hymn, “Jesus Loves Even Me,” was written and composed by Bliss after attending a meeting where the hymn “O How I Love Jesus” was repeated frequently. The thought occured to Bliss, “Have I not been singing enough about my poor love for Jesus and shall I not rather sing of His great love for me?” Under the impulse of this thought Philip Bliss composed this hymn, later to become one of the all-time favorite children’s hymns.

Lyrics and Music: Philip P Bliss

I am so glad that our Father in heav’n
Tells of His love in the Book He has giv’n;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see,
This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me.

I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me.
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves even me.

Though I forget Him, and wander away,
Still He doth love me wherever I stray;
Back to His dear loving arms I do flee,
When I remember that Jesus loves me.

Oh, if there’s only one song I can sing,
When in His beauty I see the great King,
This shall my song through eternity be,
“Oh, what a wonder that Jesus loves me!”

Jesus loves me, and I know I love Him;
Love brought Him down my poor soul to redeem;
Yes, it was love made Him die on the tree;
Oh, I am certain that Jesus loves me!
