Many people grew up singing the old classic, “Jesus Loves Me.” While we might think of it as a song for children, we must never forget that as Christians – no matter how old we get – we remain children of God. In keeping with this thought, C.D. Frey, some years ago, wrote an updated version for us to sing as we grow older. As I’ve shared copies of this in our ministry with folks facing the challenges of growing older, the response is always the same – they love it!
It is my prayer that you may be encouraged by it as well!
Jesus Loves Me
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.
Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes Jesus loves me,
Yes, Jesus loves me, The Bible tells me so.
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.
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
To the fullness of His love.
