Take care in these dangerous times and reach out to the ones you love


My Jesus I Love Thee

By William Ralph Featherston and Adoniram Gordon

This is one of my favourite hymns... There are so many great lines, but the last verse is glorious! You really can't beat singing this with the people that you regularly fellowship with and get that small glimpse of what it'll be like in eternity, singing together, in perfect love, of our Saviour. - Richard Jensen, April 19, 2014

My Jesus, I love Thee,
I know Thou art mine,
For Thee all the follies
Of sin I resign.
My gracious Redeemer,
My Saviour art Thou!
If ever I loved Thee,
My Jesus, 'tis now.

I love Thee because Thou
Hast first loved me
And purchased my pardon
On Calvary's tree.
I love Thee for wearing
The thorns on Thy brow:
If ever I loved Thee,
My Jesus, 'tis now.

I'll love Thee in life,
I will love Thee in death,
And praise Thee as long as
Thou lendest me breath;
And say when the death dew
Lies cold on my brow:
If ever I loved Thee,
My Jesus, 'tis now.

In mansions of glory
And endless delight,
I'll ever adore Thee
In heaven so bright;
I'll sing with the glittering
Crown on my brow:
If ever I loved Thee,
My Jesus, 'tis now.
