Lyrics

I’m so glad that I love Jesus,
For He is so dear to me;
I have found His love is sweeter
Than all things of earth can be.

Refrain

I am so glad that Jesus I know;
I am so glad, I do love Him so;
I am so glad that Jesus I know;
I am so glad, I do love Him so;

I’m so glad that I love Jesus,
For I’m sure of one true friend;
Thro’ the shadows and the sunshine,
He will love me to the end.

Refrain

I’m so glad that I love Jesus,
For when comes the time to die,
He will bear me in His bosom
Safely to His home on high.
