The Lyrics

Several folks asked me for the new lyrics I wrote for “Jesus Loves Me” in my previous post. They were written very quickly, over a bowl of cereal, last Sunday morning.  Here they are:

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.

Jesus loves you, too, it’s true,
and people who don’t look like you.
The widow and the Syrian,
immigrants from every land.

Refrain

Jesus loves Republicans,
Democrats, Lib’tarians.
Doesn’t matter how you vote,
He loves us all and that’s no joke.

Refrain

Jesus loves both gays and straights,
married folks and celibates.
Homeless folks, he loves them, too.
Pris’ners in their cells also.

Refrain

Jesus died for all, you see
even folks who disagree.
One thing’s true, now listen well:
God loves us all (you know darn well.)

Refrain
