Jesus loves me has been recorded by everyone from Whitney Huston to Brenda Lee.
Some unknown senior(?) wrote this version.
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.
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 others 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 understand His love
I love Jesus, does He know? Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say, That I love Him every day.
And yes, God loves seniors too! That delights me since I am gently nudging the edges of age!
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. (Psalm 37:25)
Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength fails. (Psalm 71:9)
