God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.@John 3:16

John G. Dailey, Love (Brockwayville, Pennsylvania: 1892) (🔊 pdf nwc).

Why did my Savior come to earth
And to the humble go?
Why did He choose a lowly birth?
Because He loved me so!

Refrain

He loved me so, He loved me so;
He gave His precious life for me, for me,
Because He loved me so.

Why did He drink the bitter cup
Of sorrow, pain and woe?
Why on the cross be lifted up?
Because He loved me so!

Refrain

Till Jesus comes I’ll sing His praise
And then to glory go,
And reign with Him thro’ endless days,
Because He loved me so!

Refrain
