Jesus Loves Me. . .And The GYB Giveaway Winner

{ The winner of the Grow Your Blog Giveaway is announced at the end of this post }

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the sons of God:
therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
- 1 John 3:1 -


Jesus loves me! this I know,
for the Bible tells me so;
little ones to Him belong,
they are weak but He is strong.

Jesus loves me! loves me still,
though I'm very weak and ill;
from His shining throne on high,
comes to watch me where I lie.

Jesus loves me! He who died
heavens gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
let His little child come in.

Jesus loves me! He will stay
close beside me all the way;
Thou hast bled and died for me,
I will henceforth live for Thee.

Chorus
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus love me!
The Bible tells me so.
- Anna B. Warner -


The story is told of a brilliant professor at Princeton Seminary
who always left his graduation class with these words:
"Gentleman, there is still much in this world and in the Bible
that I do not understand, but of one thing I am certain -
Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so -
and gentleman, that is sufficient!
{Quote taken from Amazing Grace hymns - Kenneth W. Osbeck}


Have a blessed Lord's Day, sweet friends!

How perfect is God's timing, Stephanie. I needed to remember that JESUS loves me. I just needed to hear that at this very moment. Anita

Hello from Spain: indeed, Jesus loves us and always I have this in my life. Congratulations to the winner. Keep in touch

I remember singing Jesus Loves Me when I was a little girl. And I cherish the memories of my own children singing this beautiful children's hymn. My youngest daughter at the age of 3 would sing it her own way. Instead of singing Jesus Loves me this I know...she would sing as loud as her little voice could be...Jesus loves me YES I know. Have a blessed day!

Oh, Stephanie, I will never for singing that song as a child in Sunday School! What a wonderful song with such precious and rich words of His love for us! And isn't it so precious that we sing these words as children...His children...and that we remember them as we grow! And, yes, what unfathomable love He has for us! Beautiful photos to remind us of the beauty He has shown us! Thanks for the spiritual refreshment, dear Stephanie, on this glorious Lord's Day!

I love that hymn! x

Debbie Nolan said...

Ah Stephanie - the scripture as well as the song is so lovely to read and you enhanced it all by your lovely photos. As a child we sang that song often but why is it when we become adults we don't seem to sing it in our services. Nothing really has changed - we are still a child of the King and He loves us so! Thank you for reminding me of this beautiful song and message. Hugs!

Dee said...

We used to sing that song in Sunday school and I taught it to my daughters when they were little girls. It's a beautiful song and the words have always been so comforting to me. Thanks for sharing it today... :)

Conniecrafter said...

This is the first song I sang to my daughter after she was born while rocking her:) Have a wonderful week!

Jazzmin said...

Oh, the words of this beautiful song make my heart feel so warm. The love of God and of Jesus is the warmest, most loving thing there is. How blessed we are! Thank you for the reminder of this as I read and gazed at your sweet photos. I know the Lord is working through you to inspire others like me, dear friend, because each song, hymn, or thought you share on Sundays always seems to be just what I needed to read/hear.
My favorite verse has to be the last- what power and amazing love is in those words.

Love and huge hugs to you!!
I hope your weekend and Lord's day were blessed and that you have a wonderful week, Stephanie ♥
