Jesus loves; he loves one;
No! Not one! but everyone;
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.

Jesus loves; he loves two;
He gives love to me and you;
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.

Jesus loves; he loves three;
He loves him and her and me;
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.

Jesus loves; he loves four;
No-one could love any more;
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.

Jesus loves; he loves five;
He said love keeps us alive:
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.

Jesus loves; he loves six;
There is nothing love can’t fix;
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.

Jesus loves; he loves seven;
His loves us well past eleven;
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.

Jesus loves; he loves eight;
Jesus’ love is all first-rate;
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.

Jesus loves; he loves nine;
Loving helps us feel so fine;
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.

Jesus loves; he loves ten;
Will we sing it all again?
Telling each one, everyone, this is what we know,
Jesus loves us as we grow.
