My Jesus, I Love Thee
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.
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.
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 love Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now."
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."

"And shall I use these ransomed powers of mine
for things that only minister to me?
Lord, take my tongue, my hands, my heart, my all,
and let me live and love for Thee."

"But God, who is rich in mercy,
for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Even when we were dead in sins,
hath quickened us together with Christ,
(by grace ye are saved;)"
~ Ephesians 2:4,5 ~
Praise the Lord for His precious love towards us!
Have a blessed Lord's Day!
