1 John 4:19
"We love him, because he first loved us."

          My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine,
          For Thee all the follies of sin I resign;
          My gracious Redeemer, my Saviour 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 loved 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.
