Lyrics

On the cross my Sav­ior bought me,
In the wil­der­ness He sought me,
To His bless­èd fold He brought me,
For He loves ev­en me.
For He loves ev­en me,
He loves ev­en me;
To His bless­èd fold He brought me;
Jesus loves ev­en me.

Soft as ev­en­ing dew­drops fall­ing,
Is His voice so sweet­ly call­ing,
More and more my soul en­thrall­ing,
For He loves ev­en me.
For He loves ev­en me,
He loves ev­en me;
More and more my soul en­thral­ing,
Jesus loves ev­en me.

Since that hap­py day He found me,
Everlasting arms sur­round me;
With His mer­cies He has crowned me,
For He loves ev­en me.
For He loves ev­en me,
He loves ev­en me;
With His mer­cies He has crowned me,
Jesus loves ev­en me.

All my needs to Him I’m bring­ing,
To His keep­ing hand I’m cling­ing,
And my heart for joy is sing­ing,
For He loves ev­en me.
For He loves ev­en me,
He loves ev­en me.
And my heart for joy is sing­ing,
Jesus loves ev­en me.

Though the ills of life may grieve me,
Yet I know He’ll ne­ver leave me,
To His glo­ry He’ll re­ceive me,
For He loves ev­en me.
For He loves ev­en me,
He loves ev­en me.
To His glo­ry He’ll re­ceive me,
Jesus loves ev­en me.
