I Love Jesus Lyrics

My path may be lonely, and dark be the night,
The clouds may be hiding the sun from my sight,
Yet I have assurance that all will be right,
Because I love Jesus.

Refrain

Because I love Jesus, Jesus
Because I love Jesus;
My soul is at rest, and in Him I am blest;
Because I love Jesus.

Because I love Jesus, my Savior and thine,
There's peace in my soul, there is comfort divine;
'Twill always abide, for the promise is mine,
Because I love Jesus.

Refrain

Though loved ones be taken away from my side,
Though riches and honor to me be denied,
Yet if I but trust Him no ill can betide,
Because I love Jesus.

Refrain

Though all that is evil against me combine,
Though Satan around me his snares should entwine,
Yet if I am faithful a crown will be mine,
Because I love Jesus.
