children singing in church

Jesus loves me, this I  know

— Author unknown

While watching a little TV on Sunday instead of going to church, I watched a church in honoring one of its senior pastors who had been retired many . He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to at that age. 

After a warm welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the applause quieted down, he rose from his high back chair and walked slowly, with great effort and a sliding gait to the podium. Without a note or written paper of any kind he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady himself and then quietly and slowly he began to …. 

“When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was  the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50-odd years of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing that made the most difference in my and sustained me through all my trials. The one thing that I could always rely on when tears and and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me… the only thing that would comfort was this verse I learned as a

“Jesus loves me this I know. 

For the Bible tells me so. 

Little ones to Him belong, 

We are weak but He is strong… 

Yes, Jesus loves me… Yes, Jesus loves me… Yes, Jesus loves me…

The Bible tells me so.” 

The old pastor stated, “I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the children’s hymn ‘Jesus Loves Me’ (for the children of course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew it the best.” 

Here, for you now, is a Senior version of “Jesus Loves Me”

Jesus loves me, this I  know, 

Though my is white as snow 

Though my sight is growing dim, 

Still He bids me in Him. 




Though my steps are oh, so slow, 

With my hand in His I’ll go 

On through life, let come what may, 

He’ll be there to lead the way. 


When the nights are dark and long, 

In my heart He puts a song.. 

Telling me in words so clear, 

“Have no fear, for I am near.” 


When my work on is done, 

And life’s victories have been won. 

He will take me home above, 

Then I’ll understand His love. 


I love Jesus, does He know? 

Have I ever told Him so? 

Jesus loves to hear me say, 

That I love Him every day. 


If you think this is neat, please pass it on to your friends. If you do not pass it on, nothing bad will happen, but you will have missed an opportunity to “reach out and touch” a friend or a loved one. 

God Bless Us All!!!
