Words by Philip P. Bliss, 1870
Tune: GLADNESS by Philip P. Bliss, 1870
Key signature: G major (1 sharp)
1. 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.
2. Tho’ I forget Him and wander away, Still He doth love me wherever I stray; Back to His dear loving arms would I flee, When I remember that Jesus loves me.
3. O, 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, “O what a wonder that Jesus loves me!”
4. 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; O I am certain that Jesus loves me!
5. If one should ask of me, how can I tell? Glory to Jesus, I know very well! God’s Holy Spirit with mine doth agree, Constantly witnessing Jesus loves me.
6. In this assurance I find sweetest rest, Trusting in Jesus, I know I am blest; Satan, dismayed, from my soul now doth flee, When I just tell him that Jesus loves me.
Refrain: 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.
