“This is My Commandment”

This is my commandment that you love one another,

Just as God has loved you.  (repeat)

Just as God has loved you, Just as God has loved you.

This is my commandment that you love one another,

Just as God has loved you.


“Jesus Loves Me”

1.    Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so;

      Little ones to him belong, they are weak but He is strong.



      Yes, Jesus loves me; Yes Jesus loves me;

      Yes, Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so!


  1. Jesus loves me still today, walking with me on my way,

Wanting as a friend to give light and love to all who live.
