Hymn History: No One Ever Cared For Me Like Jesus
Charles Weigle was an Itinerant evangelist. One day after preaching at a gospel crusade, he came home to find a note from his wife. She did not care for the life she led because of being an evangelist's wife and she was leaving him.
The next few years were a time of despair
for Weigle. He even wondered if anyone
really cared for him. After a time, his faith
was again restored and he became active
for the Lord again. During this time he
wanted to put to paper a song that would
share the feelings he had experienced
while during his despondent days. From his heart came the words and the tune for the hymn, "No One Ever Cared For Me Like Jesus."

I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus
Since I found in Him a friend so strong and true;
I would tell you how He changed my life completely -
He did something that no other friend could do.
No one ever cared for me like Jesus;
There's no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me -
O how much He cared for me!
All my life was full of sin when Jesus found me;
All my heart was full of misery and woe;
Jesus placed His strong and loving arms around me,
And He led me in the way I ought to go.
Every day He comes to me with new assurance,
More and more I understand His words of love;
But I'll never know just why He came to save me,
Till some day I see His blessed face above
