1. My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine; For Thee all the pleasures of sin I resign. My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou; If ever I loved Thee, ’tis now. I love Thee because Thou has first loved me, And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree. I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow; If ever I loved Thee, ’tis now.
2. In mansions of glory and endless delight, I’ll ever adore Thee and dwell in Thy sight; I’ll sing with the glittering crown on my brow, “If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.” I will love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death, And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath; And say when the deathdew lies cold on my brow, If ever I loved Thee, ’tis now.
