Keep A Song In Your Heart

My late mother-in-law, Marie, bless her heart, loved to hum. She would hum often, and although I did not know precisely what she was humming, she kept a song in her heart, and I admired that in her. 
Most of us (if not all of us) grew up singing "Jesus Loves Me-This I Know." This song may appear for young children, but Jesus loves us no matter our age. The Bible does indeed tell us that Jesus loves us in the following verses:
  • “As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love." John 15:9 (NIV)
  • "I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
As a new week begins, may the song "Jesus Loves Me-This I Know" bring joy and peace to your heart. Here are the lyrics:

Jesus Loves Me-This I Know Lyrics

Jesus loves me-this I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! This I know,
As He loved so long ago,
Taking children on His knee,
Saying, “Let them come to Me.”

Jesus loves me still today,
Walking with me on my way,
Wanting as a friend to give
Light and love to all who live.

Jesus loves me! He who died
Heaven’s 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.

With love,
