Do You Know the Love of Jesus?

Updated on March 21, 2014

Do you know the love of Jesus?
Do you know how much He cares?
Do you know the love of Jesus?
Do you know He is always there?

When in doubt about how your life should run,
Do not be afraid.
Place your trust in the Son.

Do you know the love of Jesus?
Do you know how much He cares?
Do you know the love of Jesus?
Do you know He is always there?

When you have wasted your life making bad decisions,
When you feel no one cares and life is full of pain and divisions,
Ask yourself

Do you know the love of Jesus?
Do you know how much He cares?
Do you know the love of Jesus?
Do you know He is always there?

When the hurt is all you see.
You struggle just to get out of bed everyday and
The darkness will not go away,
Look for Jesus.

Do you know the love of Jesus?
Do you know how much He cares?
Do you know the love of Jesus?
Do you know He is always there?

When your soul is lonely,
When your heart is full of hurt,
When you are ashamed at your weakness,
When you feel like a failure,
Hold out your hand to God.
Cry out for His mercy.

Yes, I know the love of Jesus.
Yes, I know how much He cares.
Yes, I know the love of Jesus.
Yes, I know He is always there.

      This could very easily be a song. I wanted to sleep well with something inspirational to lull me to sweet dreams, and this was spot on. It's true, Jesus' love and care is always there, no matter how we feel, and he can always lift us up to higher ground no matter what we are going though. Thank you for this encouraging song of faith.
