I love Je­sus, for He saved my soul;
From His cross the tides of mer­cy roll;
Long and far He sought me, when astray;
Now, He leads me in His own right way.


I love Je­sus; He’s my king;
Of His mer­cy I will sing;
I will fol­low in His paths of light,
Till I see Him in His glo­ry bright.

I love Je­sus, for He’s al­ways near,
Ever rea­dy with a word of cheer;
Every day, and ev­ery pass­ing hour,
I will trust Him for His keep­ing pow­er.


I love Je­sus when the joy-beams glow;
Love Him, when the stor­my tem­pests blow;
I will praise Him while the ag­es roll;
Hallelujah! for He saved my soul.
