Jesus Really Loves Me

By Steve Israel

CCLI Number: 5892813

When my daughter was planning her wedding reception, she asked me what song I wanted for the "father/daughter" dance. I thought about it for a minute and then replied, "I'd wanna write one." She got this look in her eyes that seemed to say, "It's my wedding, no way!" But then her face flashed a little smile and she said, "Okay." So, here it is, fresh from the wedding this past weekend. Enjoy! - Steve Israel, May 29, 2006

Accompaniment Track


(Verse 1)
You were singing little songs to Jesus
When you weren't even two years old
I still remember the night at a party
You pulled a string on a singing doll
As it started to sing, "Jesus Loves Me"
I almost fell out of my chair
When right on cue you sang it too
Thought I heard two little angels there
But this I know...

Jesus really loves me
For He gave me my little girl
Jesus really loves me
She's the sweetest gift in this world

(Verse 2)
On the day we welcomed your arrival
I was so overjoyed I cried
Now in the blink of an eye you are grown up
Where did time get its wings to fly?
As he placed the ring on your finger
I almost fell out of my chair
When right on cue you said, "I do"
Think I left my heart in pieces there
But this I know...

Jesus really loves me
For He gave me my little girl
Jesus really loves me
She's the sweetest gift in this world

Yes, I know my Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so its true
But so do her eyes whenever she smiles
And says, "Daddy, I love you."

Jesus really loves me
For He gave me my little girl
Jesus really loves me
She's the sweetest gift in this world

You were singing little songs to Jesus
When you weren't even two years old

I thank God that he loves me and gave me two beautiful daugther and son and the reason is it such a blessing when Jesus really us.He gave us Hope and enternal life in christ Jesus our Saviour.
Beverley (veund_DOT_arends_AT_vodacom_DOT_co_DOT_za)
Oh yes this song was great! I wish you would sing a similar song for me and my daughter. I always felt "Jesus loves me" when I see her - she is a living gift from Him. The only saddest part is that her father did not love her or take care of her as I do. So please do compose a song for a mother and daughter.

Praise His name

I normally shed tears when I think of the Greatest LOVE someone can offer to his friends,He died on the cross for our sins, I have two daughters and two boys all in good health,not that I have much to give them,but Jesus feeds them, yes he loves them, It is true Jesus love me,he love us all, God bless you,
Shadrack Ulomi (julomi_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)
after hearing this song really really really JESUS LOVES ME
M.PRABHAKAR (muntimaduguprabhakar_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)
I love you dad!
Yes what a priviledge to know that we serve an awesome God. 2000 years ago on Mt. Calvary, Jesus Christ showed us how much He loves us--by dying on the cross. As I listen to this wonderful, beautiful song, I am singing out loud and praising Jesus because HE LOVES ME....What a very beautiful song.
John 3:16 and 14:1-7

This is one of the most beautiful songs I have heard. Even though it sounds like its from a Dad, it touches the heart of this grandma. I have a daughter and a grand-daughter and this brings tears to my eyes. I am so blessed and God has surely blessed you with this song.
Shirley (LylSamEl_AT_Hotmail_DOT_com)
What a beautiful song! God is a awesome God and I believe He had a little something to do with this one. You have used your gift well. Thank you, it was a blessing listening to it. Arlene from NC (weens1947_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)
I Have 2 lovely kids, daughter and son. When I read steve story about the song I feel so Happy and I hope one day in the future I will do the same things. Thanks steve. Jesus Love Us
I only have 2 lovely boys. But I'm the Captain of a Girls' Brigade Company in Northern Ireland. For our display I wanted to do a powerpoint on what the girls' had been doing over the year. This powerful song suited the pictures so well, watching the powerpoint where the parents and you knew by looking at them what they were feeling.
A wonderful powerful song and every time I listen to it, I get goose bumps.

Dear Elton, What a Song! I have two daughters. One is 6 and and the other 14 months. The one who is 14 months was born when my wife was HIV positive. God is good. I and my daughters are HIV negative. Though we are seperated with my wife but I love my children very much. This song takes me aback and I always cry as it plays for I remember what God has done for me.
Solomon Mondlane (meya_AT_webmail_DOT_co_DOT_za)
I also do not have a little girl or any children (and I am almost too old to have any) but this is a very sweet song and makes me think I how my life would be like had I had a sweet child. It's very thoughtful and endearing!
JM (bakerlady0507_AT_verizon_DOT_net)

My girls are all grown up; but this is a great father's day gift from me to them. Thank you.
Augie (auggiedoggie)
The most powerful words a person can ever hear: Jesus Loves me.
Gary Potratz (glpotratz_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)
I'm so moved by this song that I tear every time when I hear it. It reminds me that my only daughter is realy a gift from our beloved God. But I didn't treat her very well when she is her childhood, not gave her much love care. Now she left from home to other state for college schooling,then I feel I lost her and miss her very often. This beautiful song always calls back my feelings about her.
May God Bless Our Children
Wei Lee (welis13579_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)

Sarah is truly a beautiful girl both inside and out!! I met Sarah and her dad, Steve, at a school open house prior to Sarah joining my sixth grade class. It was so obvious then and they had a very special relationship. It's even hard for me to believe she's all grow up now!!! It's been a joy to know Steve, Sarah, as well as her mom , Barbara and brother Nate.
Steve, you were right .... I needed a bunch of tissues!!! Send my best wishes for happiness to Sarah for me ... Nancy
