Jesus Loves You
Plaque: Every person needs to be loved and reminded that they are loved ... with a twist!
We all know the tune, but the lyrics first appeared as a poem in the context of an 1860 novel called Say and Seal, written by Susan Warner in which the words were spoken as a comforting poem to a dying child. The poem was written by her younger sister, Anna Bartlett Warner.
In 1862, William Batchelder Bradbury (1816–1868) put the poem to music, adding his own chorus "Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus Loves me..."
As originally published in 1860, it appeared in three stanzas, as follows:
Jesus loves me—this I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to him belong,—
They are weak, but he is strong.
Jesus loves me—loves me still,
Though I'm very weak and ill;
From his shining throne on high,
Comes to watch me where I lie.
Jesus loves me—he will stay,
Close beside me all the way.
Then his little child will take,
Up to heaven for his dear sake.
