1. 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.
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 love 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.
