61. Jesus Loves Me

1 Jesus loves me! This I know,
for the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to him belong;
they are weak, but he is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.

2 Jesus loves me--he who died,
heaven's gate to open wide.
He will wash away my sin,
let his little child come in. (Refrain)

3 Jesus loves me, this I know,
as he loved so long ago,
taking children on his knee,
saying, "Let them come to me." (Refrain)

Refrain in other languages:

Cristo me ama,
Cristo me ama,
Cristo me ama,
La biblia dice asi.

Yesu anipenda,
Yesu anipenda,
Yesu anipenda,
Biblia yasema.
