My path may be lonely,
And dark be the night,
The clouds may be hiding
The sun from my sight,
Yet I have assurance
That all will be right,
Because I love Jesus.


Because I love Jesus, Jesus
Because I love Jesus;
My soul is at rest,
And in Him I am blest;
Because I love Jesus.

Because I love Jesus,
My Savior and thine,
There’s peace in my soul
Tthere is comfort divine;
’Twill always abide,
For the promise is mine,
Because I love Jesus.


Though loved ones be taken
Away from my side,
Though riches and honor
To me be denied,
Yet if I but trust Him
No ill can betide,
Because I love Jesus.


Though all that is evil
Against me combine,
Though Satan around me
His snares should entwine,
Yet if I am faithful
A crown will be mine,
Because I love Jesus.
