“Jesus Loves Me”

Jesus loves me! This I know, For the Bi-ble tells me so; Lit-tle ones to Him belong, They are weak but He is strong.  Refrain.


Jesus loves me! He will stay Close be-side me all the way; He’s pre-pared a home for me, And some day His face I’ll see. Refrain.


Refrain: Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bi-ble tells me so.



“Jesus Calls Us”

Jesus calls us; o’er the tu-mult Of our life’s wild, restless sea, Day by day His sweet voice sound-eth, Saying, “Chris-tian, fol-low Me.”


Jesus calls us; by Thy mer-cies, Sav-ior, may we hear Thy call,

Give our hearts to Thine o-be-dience, Serve and love Thee

best of all.  A-men



“What a Friend We Have in Jesus”

What a Friend we have in Je-sus, All our sins and griefs to bear!  What a priv-i-lege to car-ry Ev-ery-thing to God in prayer!  O what peace we of-ten for-feit, O what need-less pain we bear, All be-cause we do not car-ry Ev-ery-thing to God in prayer!


Are we weak and heav-y la-den, Cum-bered with a load of care? 

Pre-cious Sav-ior, still our Ref-uge--- Take it to the Lord in prayer. 

Do thy friends de-spise, for-sake thee?  Take it to the Lord in prayer;  In His arms He’ll take and shield thee, Thou wilt find a sol-ace there.
