“We love because He first loved us.” – 1 John 4:19

Oh, How I Love Jesus

Verse 1:
There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds as music in my ear,
The sweetest name on earth.

Chorus:
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me.

Verse 2:
It tells me of a Savior’s love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner’s perfect plea.

Chorus

Verse 3:
It tells me what my Father has
In store for ev’ry day;
And though I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way.

Chorus

Verse 4:
It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe,
Who in each sorrow bears a part
That none can bear below.

Chorus
