Jesus Loves Me (e-mail received)

Subject: Fw: Jesus loves me this I know (Senior version – nice)

SENIOR VERSION OF JESUS LOVES ME
92 YEAR OLD PREACHER

While watching a little TV on Sunday instead of going to church, I
watched a church in Atlanta honoring one of its senior pastors who had been
retired many years. He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the church
even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that age. After a warm
welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the applause quieted down,
he ose from his high back chair and walked slowly, with great effort and a
sliding gait to the podium. Without a note or written paper of any kind
he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady himself and then quietly and
slowly he began to speak….

“When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked
me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50-odd years
of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just
one thing that made the most difference in my life and sustained me through
all my trials.. The one thing that I could always rely on when tears and
heartbreak and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me…
The only thing that would comfort was this verse……… …..

“Jesus loves me this I know.
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
We are weak but He is strong…..
Yes, Jesus loves me….
The Bible tells me so.”

The old pastor stated, “I always noticed that it was the adults who
chose the children’s hymn ‘Jesus Loves Me’ (for the children of course) during
a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could
see they knew it the best.”

“HERE FOR YOU NOW IS A SENIOR VERSION OF JESUS LOVES ME”:

JESUS LOVES ME

Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow
Though my sight is growing dim,
Still He bids me trust in Him.
(CHORUS)

YES, JESUS LOVES ME.. YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.

Though my steps are oh, so slow,
With my hand in His I’ll go
On through life, let come what may,
He’ll be there to lead the way.
(CHORUS)

When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song..
Telling me in words so clear,
“Have no fear, for I am near.”
(CHORUS)

When my work on earth is done,
And life’s victories have been won.
He will take me home above,
Then I’ll understand His love.
(CHORUS)

I love Jesus, does He know?
Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say,
That I love Him every day.
(CHORUS)

If you think this is neat, please pass it on to your friends. If you do
not pass it on, nothing bad will happen, but you will have missed an
opportunity to “reach out and touch” a friend or a loved one.

GOD BLESS US ALL!!!
