The Lyrics: Jesus Loves Even Me.
I am so glad that our Father in heav'n tells of His love in the Book He has giv'n;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see - This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me.
Tho I forget Him and wander away, still He doth love me wherever I stray;
Back to His dear loving arms would I flee, when I remember that Jesus loves me.
O if there's only one song I can sing, when in His beauty I see the great King,
This shall my song in eternity be: "O what a wonder that Jesus loves me!"I am so glad that Jesus loves me, Jesus love me, Jesus loves me;
I am so glad that Jesus loves me, Jesus loves even me.
Hymn History: Jesus Loves Even Me.
Philip Bliss was a dynamic hymn writer and song leader, and contemporary of Moody and Sankey. During the many evangelistic crusades that he was in involved in, he noticed that the hymn Oh, How I Love Jesus was sung very often.
After one night he started to consider the song
and started to instead think not of his POOR
love for Jesus but instead of Jesus GREAT love
for him. That evening he wrote the hymn "Jesus
Loves Even Me." I'm sure that there are many
songs that Bliss today is singing in Heaven,
but he finally was able to tell Jesus face to face, "O what a wonder that You love me," when he died in a train accident. He was just 38 years old when he died.
