Inspired by . . . Hymns of Faith: Jesus Loves Me

I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it. (Luke 18:17)


Written in 1860 as part of Anna and Susan Warner's novel Say and Seal, the poem, Jesus Loves Me remains a favorite hymn of children around the world.

The composer, William Bradbury, recognized as a pioneer in children's music, composed the music for Warner's text and personally added the chorus to their existing four stanzas.

This simple, children's hymn teaches us some powerful things about our God:

We are weak; Jesus is strong.

Jesus has a special place in His heart for children; they belong to Him.

Jesus' death unlocked the gates of heaven allowing us to enter in.

When we come willingly to Him, as a child, He washes away our sin.

The Bible teaches us the truth about Jesus and His love for us.

You may not know all the words to this beloved hymn but chances are you know the most important ones:

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


You can find the entire series here.

It seems fitting to share this version, listen here.
