Jesus Loves Me - For Seniors

My three-year old granddaughter enjoys singing Jesus loves me..., just like her mother and uncle used to when they were her age. Can you imagine my surprise when I recently came across the same melody with different lyrics? They really spoke to me, so I will share them with you. If you haven't yet reached the age where you can identify, don't worry. Eventually you, too, will get there (Lord willing)...

Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow.
Though my sight is growing dim,
Still He bids me trust in Him. 

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

Though my steps are oh, so slow,
With my hand in His I'll go.
On through life, let come what may,
He'll be there to lead the way.

CHORUS

Though I am no longer young,
I have much - which He's begun.
Let me serve Christ with a smile,
Go with you the extra mile.

 CHORUS

When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song.
Telling me in words so clear,
"Have no fear, for I am near."

CHORUS

When my work on earth is done
And life's victories have been won,
He will take me home above,
Then I'll see His unbound love.

 CHORUS

I love Jesus, does He know?
Just today I told Him so.
Jesus loves to hear me say,
That I love Him every day.

CHORUS
All credit for this song goes to the unknown author - thank you!

Hi Margaret,

Finally, I am getting the chance and the energy to read and respond to these lovely blog posts. I absolutely adore this song ... the words are so special. I haven't joined the 'white as snow' group just yet, but I watch as my lovely parents go through this phase (which as you say, we will all get to).

Love and blessings.

As you can see, my hair isn't white as yet either, but I intend to sing when I get there. My TBR pile is huge as well, so I appreciate you taking the time to comment!
