Video #1: Here is a video of me and my daughter playing the gospel song "Jesus Loves Me."
"Jesus Loves Me" is a Christian hymn written by Anna Bartlett Warner (1827–1915). The lyrics first appeared as a poem in the context of an 1860 novel called Say and Seal, written by her older sister Susan Warner (1819–1885), in which the words were spoken as a comforting poem to a dying child. The tune was added in 1862 by William Batchelder Bradbury (1816–1868). Along with his tune, Bradbury added his own chorus "Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus Loves me..." After publication as a song it became one of the most popular Christian hymns in churches around the world, especially among children.
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. Refrain Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so. Jesus loves me, He who died Heaven’s gate to open wide; He will wash away my sin, Let His little child come in. Refrain Jesus loves me, loves me still, Though I’m very weak and ill; From His shining throne on high Comes to watch me where I lie. Refrain Jesus loves me, He will stay Close beside me all the way, Then His little child will take Up to Heaven for His dear sake.
