‘My Jesus, I Love Thee’


 1. My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine. For Thee all the follies of sin I resign. My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou; if ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

What a beautiful hymn it is, and written with such  spiritual depth! Did you know this hymn was written somewhere around 1864 by a teenager named, William Ralph Featherston?! He wrote it as an expression of gratitude to Christ at the time he got saved and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior.

May we love one another as Christ loves us! Always encourage our young people to actively get involved with the ‘Kingdom Work’ for God!

Always at His feet, Jennifer
