This I Know

Lyrics 

Verse 1

Jesus loves me, this I know

For the nail prints tell me so

Innocent, yet torn and tried

Then they pierced Him in His side

For my sin He bled and died

Jesus loves me, this I know 

 

Verse 2

Jesus loves me, this I know

For the dark tomb tells me so

There they laid His body down

Songs of mourners echoed ‘round

King of kings without a crown

Jesus loves me, this I know

 

Verse 3

Jesus loves me, this I know

For the bare tomb tells me so

To the grave His foll’wers fled

He is risen as He said

Do not look here for the dead

Jesus loves me, this I know

 

Verse 4

Jesus loves me, this I know

For the throne room tells me so

He is reigning as the Lamb

Holding all with nail-pierced hands

Lord and King, the Great I AM

Jesus loves me, this I know
