Weekend Wisdom: Hymn For A Princess

Today’s hymn perfect for celebrating a new princess. The world needs a fresh infusion of pink with riots, earthquakes, and other dreary news.

So here’s to you Princess Cambridge, may you have a healthy, long, joy-filled life and always have a child-like faith.

To the rest of us, may these words remind you of a simple but profound truth – Jesus loves you.

 

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.

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.

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.

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

–Anna B. Warner, 1820 -1915
