I love to think of Jesus,
Who else could it be,
Who could come down from Heav’n
To save a soul like me?
To think of Him does not
Repay the debt I owe,
I’ll do my best my gratitude to show.


I love to think of Jesus
And His love for me;
My soul is lost in wonder
That such love could be;
I’ve known the love of mother,
Of sister, friend and brother,
Like Jesus there’s no other,
He’s more than all to me.

I love to think that He has
Given me a part
In pardon that He purchased
With a broken heart;
And oft my eyes are filled
With tears as I recall
What He has done for me,
And for us all.


I love to think of Jesus
When I am distressed,
To think upon His promise
Brings a blissful rest;
In sorrow, pain and anguish
He is near I know,
It is no wonder that
I love Him so.


I love to think of Him when
Tears of sorrow fall,
To know that He has suffered
And He knows it all;
It gives me strength to bear
My burden nor complain,
I never yet have called
To Him in vain.
