My boys love for me to sing them “night-night” songs. And I love to do it.
One of their favorites (and most popular requests) is “Jesus Loves Me.”
Have you listened to the words of this song lately?
We often shrug off this song as “just a kid’s song,” but the words are incredibly powerful.
Many of us have known them for years, but we forget–in the rat-race of adult life, we’ve forgotten the simple lessons we learned so many years ago.
When we are buying the lies of the Ultimate Con Man, this song can remind us just how powerful is the love that the Savior has for us.
This simple kid’s song, a simple reminder for all of us today.
Jesus loves me. The Bible tells me so.
Share with me: Is there a song you learned in childhood that still speaks to you today?

DH loves the Gaithers! I do think it's a southern thing! 🙂 I love the song about the lame man. Peter and John went to pray, they met a lame man on the way, he stuck out his palm and asked for an alm and this is what Peter did say:…Do you know that one?
gaithers!! awesome. i fall in love with david phelps every time i hear him sing. "no more night" is my fav. and that guy penrod jesus-looking fellow is awesome too. but on to your question…i like the I Am A C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N song. it's a declaration of faith! "and I have C-H-R-I-S-T in my H-E-A-R-T and I will L-O-V-E him all the T-I-M-E!!"
This isn't a kid song, but it's a song I remember when I was younger. Nothing beats Amazing Grace.Love this post, Jenny!
I went to my sister's church this weekened to hear my nephew sing "Jesus Loves Me" in the childrens' choir, and the pastor spoke about the exact same thing!
Okay, SO glad I'm not alone in the Gaither fan club! 🙂 My grandparents were huge fans and introduced me to the Gaithers when I was a kid and I have always loved their sound. J- David Phelps is Ah-mazing. And I love Guy Penrod. Love his voice.K- Nothing beats Amazing Grace.Jessica- I don't know that one!Julie- Weird! Great minds… 🙂
