Jesu Fe Mi, Emi Mo

Jesu fe mi, emi mo
Bibeli so fun mi bee;
Tire lawon omode
Won ko lagbara, Oun ni.

Refrain

Ah, Jesu fe mi,
Ah, Jesu fe mi,
Ah, Jesu fe mi,
Bibeli so fun mi.

Jesu fe mi, O ti ku
Lati si orun sile;
Yi o we ese mi nu,
Y'o je komo Re wole

Jesu fe mi, O fe mi,
Bi emi tile saisan,
Lor'akete arun mi,
O t'ite Re wa so mi.

Jesu fe mi, Yi o duro
Ti mi lona mi gbogbo:
Bi mo ba fe ti mo ku,
Yio mu mi rele orun.
Poem by Anna Bartlett Warner As originally published in 1860, it appeared in three stanzas, as follows:

Jesus loves me—this I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to him belong,—
They are weak, but he is strong.

Jesus loves me—loves me still,
Though I'm very weak and ill;
From his shining throne on high,
Comes to watch me where I lie.

Jesus loves me—he will stay,
Close beside me all the way.
Then his little child will take,
Up to heaven for his dear sake.

Hymn by William Batchelder Bradbury 

Jesus loves me—this I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong—
They are weak, but He is strong.

Refrain 

Yes, Jesus loves me!/3x
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me—He who died
Heaven’s gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.

 Jesus loves me—loves me still,
Though I’m very weak and ill;
From His shining throne on high
Comes to watch me where I lie.

Jesus loves me—He will stay
Close beside me all the way,
Then His little child will take
Up to Heaven for His dear sake.


"Jesus Loves Me" is a Christian hymn written by Anna Bartlett Warner (1827–1915).[1] The lyrics first appeared as a poem in the context of an 1860 novel called Say and Seal, written by her older sister Susan Warner (1819–1885), in which the words were spoken as a comforting poem to a dying child.[2] The tune was added in 1862 by William Batchelder Bradbury (1816–1868). Along with his tune, Bradbury added his own chorus "Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus Loves me..."After publication as a song it became one of the most popular Christian hymns in churches around the world, especially among children.
