The following is a creative adaptation of the familiar children's song which begins: "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, this I know
Though my hair is white as snow
Though my sight is growing dim
Still He bids me trust in him.
Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me; the Bible tells me so.
Though my steps are oh, so slow
With my hand in His I'll go
On through life, let come what may
He'll be there to lead the way.
Though I am no longer young,
I have much which He's begun
Let me serve Christ with a smile.
Go with other's the "extra mile.”
When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song,
Telling me in words so clear,
"Have not fear, for I am near."
When my work on earth is done,
And life's vict’ries have been won
He will take me home above.
Then I'll understand his love
I love Jesus, does he know?
Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say
That I love him every day.
Yes, I love Jesus,
Yes, I love Jesus.
Yes, I love Jesus;
I tell Him when I pray.
