Jesus Loves Me

DS loves this song. It is the one song he will sit still long enough to listen to for it's entirety. I think his DG (Dear Grammy) started singing this to him first. She always sings to him before his nap or bed time when she is with him. Maybe that is why he loves it so much ... he thinks he is about to get two Mr. Brown Bears, remember this blog post?! :) He smiles at her with complete adoration while she sings (I can't say he does the same for my tone-deaf sounds).

Regardless of the reason, I love that he enjoys this song as much as I do. It definitely is my favorite children's Christian song. I finally decided to look up the "official" lyrics today. My DH will be happy to know that once again I was making up my own lyrics to a well known song. It now is starting to even entertain me ... really, where the heck do I come up with these lyrics?!

Anyway, here are the "official" lyrics (makes me feel at peace just reading them):

Jesus Loves Me

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! loves me still,
'tho I'm very weak and ill,
that I might from sin be free,
bled and died upon the tree.

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

Jesus loves me! He who died
heaven's gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
let His little child come in.

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

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.

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

Oh, and if you must know, I was singing in the first verse:
"Little ones come near and far
For they are weak and He is strong"

Please tell me I am not the only one that sings the wrong lyrics with out knowing until someone (like your DH) says "what did you just say" followed by a giggle????

When DS was with me this weekend so you and DH could enjoy your birthday dinner he constantly wanted me to wind the music box in the playroom, now I know why, it plays Jesus Loves Me. I must confess even though it is my favorite song to sing to my grandkids, I only knew the first verse. Now I can learn more so I don't repeat myself so often.
Love,
DM aka DG
