"We love him, because he first loved us."

          There is a name I love to hear,
          I love to sing its worth;
          It sounds like music in mine ear,
          The sweetest name on earth.

            Chorus
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Because He first loved me!

          It tells me of a Savior's love,
          Who died to set me free;
          It tell me of His precious blood,
          The sinner's perfect plea.

            Chorus
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Because He first loved me!

          It tells me what my Father hath,
          In store for ev'ry day,
          And tho' I tread a darksome path,
          Yields sunshine all the way.

            Chorus
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Because He first loved me!

          It tells of One whose loving heart,
          Can feel my deepest woe,
          Who in each sorrow bears a part,
          That none can bear below.

            Chorus
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Oh, how I love Jesus,
            Because He first loved me!
