Key Signature: E flat major (3 flats)
1. Jesus loves me! this I know, For the Bible tells me so; Little ones to Him belong; They are weak, but He is strong.
2. Jesus loves me! He Who died, Heaven's gate to open wide; He will wash away my sin, Let His little child come in.
3. Jesus loves me! loves me still, Though I'm very weak and ill; From His shining throne on high, Comes to watch me where I lie.
4. Jesus loves me! He will stay Close beside me all the way; If I love Him, when I die He will take me home on high.
Refrain: Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me— The Bible tells me so.
