Sunday Hymn


O, How I Love Jesus

There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music to my ear,
The sweetest name on earth.

O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus--
because He first loved me!
It tells me of a Savior's love,
who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner's perfect plea.

O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus--
because He first loved me!
It tells me what my Father hath
In store for ev'ry day,
And, tho I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way.

O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus--
because He first loved me!

It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe,
Who ineach sorrow bears a part
That none can bear below.

O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus--
because He first loved me!

(Frederick Whitfield)

This was my favorite song as a child. I sang it while riding my bike through the neighborhood and didn't consider anyone hearing me. LOL!

Love it! The photo is so relaxing!
