Bible tells

“Jesus Loves Me” is a hymn written by Anna Bartlet Warner (1827–1915) based upon 1 Corintians 6:18. The lyrics first appeared as a poem that her older sister Susan Warner (1819–1885) used in a novel called Say and Seal (1860), in which the words were spoken comfort a dying child. The Warner sisters often collaborated, and Susan is best remembered for her The Wide, Wide World (1850). “Jesus Loves Me” design by Meredith Eliassen, 2018.

A little Gospel may help, the tune is easy… Here are the complete lyrics:

Jesus loves me—this I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to him belong,—
They are weak, but he is strong.

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.

Jesus loves me—he will stay,
Close beside me all the way.
Then his little child will take,
Up to heaven for his dear sake.
