My path may be lone­ly,
And dark be the night,
The clouds may be hid­ing
The sun from my sight,
Yet I have as­sur­ance
That all will be right,
Because I love Je­sus.


Because I love Je­sus, Je­sus
Because I love Je­sus;
My soul is at rest,
And in Him I am blest;
Because I love Je­sus.

Because I love Je­sus,
My Sav­ior and thine,
There’s peace in my soul
There is com­fort divine;
’Twill al­ways abide,
For the pro­mise is mine,
Because I love Je­sus.


Though loved ones be taken
Away from my side,
Though riches and hon­or
To me be de­nied,
Yet if I but trust Him
No ill can be­tide,
Because I love Je­sus.


Though all that is ev­il
Against me com­bine,
Though Sa­tan around me
His snares should en­twine,
Yet if I am faith­ful
A crown will be mine,
Because I love Je­sus.
