1. I do love Jesus with all my heart
Because of what He did for me;
His life for me on the cross He gave,
He died for me on Calvary.

Refrain
I cannot but love Him who died for me;
I cannot but love Him, so true is He;
I love Him and ever will His name confess,
My life, my Lord and my righteousness!

2. I do love Jesus with all my heart
Because of what He does for me:
His depthless grace all my life enfolds,
And guards in love’s true liberty. [Refrain]

3. I do love Jesus with all my heart
Because of what He is to me:
My light, my life, my abiding strength,
My sure defense, my king is He. [Refrain]

4. Will you love Jesus with all your heart?
He bore your sins on Calvary;
Repent, believe, Him as Lord confess;
Then you shall live eternally. [Refrain]
