He loves me, yes He does

Jesus loves me
*****
I know myself or so I believe
And this much I know
His love I deserve not
His care I shouldn’t have
Yet He loves me, yes He does
*****
Up the Cross He went, wept for poor me
It is me he had in mind and in love He died
Even knowing that somehow I might reject Him
With knowledge of my wickedness
Yet even now He loves me and yes He does
*****
Too weak I am, too stubborn I have been
Hurting Him at every opportune moment I have
Opening those scars all afresh,  even crucifying Him
Yet He amazes me to this end, and now this I know;
That He loves me, yes He does
*****
So now I beseech of thee precious Savior
Thy love teach my heart;  to love others
Even as you do; in pain and betrayal
Loving you first so as to love as you do
For you do love and yes you do.
*****
He loves me, now and always
Even to the end of times He says,
He surely will always be with me
For you know what?
He loves me, yes He does
*****
