I love You, Jesus

My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine For Thee all the pleasures of sin I resign; My gracious Redeemer, my Saviour art Thou! “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, should the death-dew lie cold on my brow, “If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now!”

This is my story. Here in these lines, penned by William R. Featherston in 1862, lie my commitment. I love Jesus. I will stand by Him till the end of time. Love for the Master compels us to routinely pledge our allegiance to Him.

His Kingdom beckons us. Let’s make fresh vows to enter in!
