The first two lines of the poem are perhaps the most well known of any Christian hymn:
Jesus loves me! This I know, For the Bible tells me so.
When Karl Barth, a well-known twentieth century theologian, was asked to summarize the most profound truths from the thousands of pages of Christian theology books he'd written, he said,
“Jesus loves me! this I know, For the Bible tells me so.”
Easy enough for a child, accurate enough for a theologian.
May I never forget this profound, magnificent, wonderful truth:
Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so!
"God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life." John 3:16
