1 I am so happy in Christ today,
That I go singing along my way;
Yes, I'm so happy to know and say,
"Jesus included me too."

Chorus:
Jesus included me,
Yes, He included me;
When the Lord said, "Whosoever,"
He included me.
Jesus included me,
Yes, He included me;
When the Lord said, "Whosoever,"
He included me.

2 Gladly I read, "Whosoever may
Come to the fountain of life today;"
But when I read it I always say,
"Jesus included me too." [Chorus]

3 Ever God's Spirit is saying, "Come!"
Hear the Bride saying, "No longer roam";
But I am sure while they're calling home.
Jesus included me too. [Chorus]

4 "Freely come drink," words the soul to thrill!
O with what joy they my heart do fill!
For when He said, "Whosoever will,"
Jesus included me too.

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
