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

A child’s song. Simple melody, simple lyrics, yet the most profound message.

It may not have complicated chord patterns or Latin phraseology. Orchestral accompaniment is not necessary for it to reach its full potential. One doesn’t need to be exceptionally talented or musically refined in order to sing the melody. The beauty of this song is most emphasized when lisped from the lips of a 3 year-old.

It is a timeless song of profound truth and clarity. Jesus Loves Me. Take a moment to think of those three simple words. Jesus loves me.

It’s about that moment in time when He breathed into your nostrils the breath of life. Why did He do that? Because He created you. When He looked upon you, He said, “It is good.” When you’re created in the Image of the Creator, you know you are of much worth to Him. He doesn’t make junk. He loves you.

Jesus Loves Me.

It’s about that dark hour in history. In the midst of excruciating pain and misery, screaming mobs, bleeding hands and feet when the thought of you loomed above the hate and noise. The immense love for you made the cost of redemption worth every drop of blood.

Jesus Loves Me.

There is no heart so big, no romance more thrilling, no love so great, no love song more sweet than the immense truth behind the one song, Jesus loves me. Don’t ever forget that. When tempted to despair, declare with all the faith in your heart, “Yes! Jesus loves ME!” See how long you can wallow in the pit of depression when you hum this song under your breath.

I don’t care who you are, there’s not a one of you beyond the reach of the greatest Valentine of them all. Get it in your head that He loves you.
