|My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine;
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign.
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.
I love Thee because Thou has first loved me,
I’ll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
In mansions of glory and endless delight,
Probably one of my favorite hymns of all time, I pray that one day someone might write a new tune, but for now this hymn of William R. Featherston written in 1864 at the age of 16 will have to do.
