Jesus Loves Me - For Seniors
My three-year old granddaughter enjoys singing, "Jesus loves me, this I know," just like her mother and uncle used to do 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 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.
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.
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."
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.
I love Jesus, does He know? Just today I told Him so.
Jesus loves to hear me say, that I love Him every day.
