This is Why I Love My Jesus

Full Text

1 Would you know why I love Jesus?
Why He is so dear to me?
‘Tis because my blessed Savior
From my sins hath set me free.

Refrain:
This is why, yes, why I love Him,
This is why I love Him so;
He has pardoned my transgressions,
He has washed me white as snow.

2 Would you know why I love Jesus?
Why He is so dear to me?
‘Tis because the blood of Jesus
Fully saves and cleanses me. [Refrain]

3 Would you know why I love Jesus?
Why He is so dear to me?
‘Tis because, amid temptation,
He supports and strengthens me. [Refrain]

4 Would you know why I love Jesus?
Why He is so dear to me?
‘Tis because, in every conflict,
Jesus gives me victory. [Refrain]

5 Would you know why I love Jesus?
Why He is so dear to me?
‘Tis because my Friend and Savior
He will ever, ever be. [Refrain]
