Yes, Jesus Loves Even Me
This is a faithful saying, and worthy
of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus
came into the world to save sinners;
of whom I am chief. I Timothy 1:15
"Jesus loves me, this I know...."
I learned that old song as a child,
But I knew it didn't apply to ME---
I was much too rebellious and wild.
I would not listen to anybody,
Did whatever I wanted to do;
Always getting myself into trouble ---
No, that song just couldn't be true!
I had a big chip on my shoulder,
Life wasn't fair, 'twas plain to see.
I wouldn't let Jesus come into my heart ---
That song wasn't for people like me.
Then one day a strange thing happened,
As I sat on an old wooden pew,
The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart,
And said, "Yes, Jesus loves even YOU!"
Then I took Jesus Christ as my Savior,
My whole attitude changed that day!
My life will never again be the same,
Since Jesus washed my sins away!
"Jesus loves me, this I know..."
Why did it take so long to see
The simple truth of that childhood song:
Yes, Jesus loves me --- even me!
