This song looks back to the death of Jesus… and reminds us Jesus did what He did because He loves us.
Bible Reference… John 3:16; 10:11; Ephesians 5:2b; 1John 3:16; 4:16; Revelation 1:5
On a hill called Calvary, Jesus my Lord suffered for me;
carried the cross all the way, my sins to atone.
Then they nailed Him to that cross.
Great was the pain and the loss; He suffered it all because He loved me.

        CHORUS:
        Because He loved me, my Savior died; on the cross, was crucified.
        No greater love for mortal man has ever been known.
        Oh, praise His dear name; He loves me so.
        Now I am His; He’s mine. I know He suffered it all because He loved me.

Then they carried Him away; placed Him in a lonely grave.
Surely, they thought that this would be the end of this Man.
But, on the third and glorious day, God came and rolled the stone away;
He rose from the dead because He loved me. (CHORUS)

        TAG:
        Oh, praise His dear name; He loves me so.
        Now I am His; He’s mine. I know He suffered it all because He loved me.                                   Because He loved me… Because He loved me.
