Avalon - My Jesus, I Love Thee Lyrics

My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine;
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign;
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou;
If ever I love Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

I love Thee because Thou hast first loved me,
And purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree;
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow;
(Oh my savior) If ever I love Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

It is now (if ever I love my Savior, 'tis now etc)
It is now (if ever I love my Savior, 'tis now)

In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I'll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright;
I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow,
If ever I love Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

  14. Kayla Arredondo

    My Jesus died with a crown of thorns so I could sing to him with a glittering crown in heaven ...oh my Lord what unfailing love for all to cherish or to negate forever and always

  15. Johanna Suero

    My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine;
    For Thee all the follies of sin I resign;
    My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou;
    If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.
    I love Thee because Thou hast first loved me,
    And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree;
    I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow;
    If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.
    I’ll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
    And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath;
    And say when the death dew lies cold on my brow,
    If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.
    In mansions of glory and endless delight,
    I’ll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright;
    I’ll sing with the glittering crown on my brow,
    If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.

  16. David Rice

    I like it when Christian music artists that are not normally associated with southern gospel have appearances at Gaither Homecomings. We're all on the same team, right??

    Matias Geraldo

    David Rice Yeah just some less racist than others.

    Albert Lind

    @Matias Geraldo Mr. Geraldo, I think everyone who includes him/herself on that team wishes you well, but I suggest that you need some help. It wouldn't hurt you to investigate this same Jesus they are singing about.

    Matias Geraldo

    Albert Lind Yeah maybe if I do some more “investigating” I can be as ignorant to reality as you are! Some 90% of fake “Christians” support Trump? ...who is the most racist ignorant president since Andrew Jackson? Yeah I think there’s a problem...In the south is where we should start as it has always been.. White people suck. - A Christian conscious white person.


    My love for you is endless....... Jesus

    Avalon is just the best! My favorite group... and these 4 were just the best!

  21. Albert van den Berg

    Why are Bill and Gloria mentioned in the title, instead of the actual performers? Weird and illogical choice.

    Request: add the recording date and the title of the dvd in the description.

    Cynthia McKee

    +Albert van den Berg  - I think it's because this was a Gaither Production.  But, I believe the group is called Avalon.  This is my favorite rendition of this hymn. Just beautiful!

    JJ Cevering

    Albert van den Berg I wouldn't have clicked but the knowledge that it was a Gaither gathering

  22. Chris Craig

    At 17 seconds is that Michael W. Smith?

    Michael Burlison

    @Chris Craig Yes sure is : )


    No I think that is Jody McBrayer, just a side view


    That was indeed Michael W. Smith. This was a special event recorded at the Billy Graham Library in North Carolina. In addition to Ruth Bell Graham, George Beverly Shea, Cliff Barrows, Avalon and Michael W. Smith, additional guests not normally associated with Southern Gospel but associated with Dr. Graham that offered either song or testimony included Andraé Crouch, CeCe Winans, Evie Karlsson, and the legendary Ethel Waters (on video, she passed in 1977 at the age of 80). The two albums, A Billy Graham Music Homecoming, Vols. 1 & 2 (released 2001) are available in both CD and DVD form from several outlets, including Gaither.com. These are a couple of my favorite albums just to sit and listen to.

  23. GoodNewsJim

    I'm a dude who knows Jesus is real.  So believe me and have faith. Be good and loving to all.

  24. redmx Peters

    Just released .My Jesus i love Thee - Renee Peters you will love it.

  25. Jonas Nyirenda

    Beautiful message to the great God and our Saviour, Lord Jesus. God bless you and the Gaither team for this. Thanks for sharing.

  26. Peter Joseph

    Great hymn. Wonderful vocal and arrangement. God be praised.

  27. Ms.Alexandre


  28. Oladimeji Famuyiwa

    A beautiful song. Blessed be the name of the LORD.

  29. Samuel Valentine

    Glory too God, great voices! One of my favorites song, to God be all the glory!!

  30. Gabriel Balestreri

    Que delícia de música, a vontade que tenho é amar ainda mais ao meu Jesus!

  31. Ashlee Johnson

    I wish they'd come to celebrate freedom ...I don't know how many people would like them tho.

  32. Ashlee Johnson

    This is just beautiful. What talent.

  33. Thluai Te

    Great ! I love you Jesus.

  34. Brian Welch

    Somehow though, I get the feeling in my spirit that your statements are those of one using a fake account to spread discord among fellow Christians and are not really one of us at all.....which is sad that someone believes it is their obligation in life to try tear apart Christianity and different people's relationship with Jesus.

  35. Brian Welch

    No, Mr. Simpleton, following the traditions of me will decide whether or not you go to heaven. Faith in Christ Jesus decides that. John 3:16 states it quite clear. Following traditions would mean doing works, which can never redeem us. Alas, God sent His Son Jesus to earth to take on a human body, be as one of us except without sin and thus be the one to save us all from Satan's claim to our souls.

  36. uriah bholo

    my Jesus i do love you indeed

  37. dpmugisa

    Are you living up to your name?

  38. dpmugisa

    What's wrong with you?

  39. Juan Carlos Alcas Sáenz

    Qué geniales arreglos! (Y)

  40. MinnieTyko

    So we are supposed to follow traditions to go to heaven? Scripture reference please.

  41. MinnieTyko

    Really? LOL. Please cite the sources from which you have draw this conclusion.

  42. Charles SImpleton

    The hymn itself is not bad, the group sings it in a very perverse manner which is not how it was intended to be sung nor how God would want us to sing it. The old-fashioned traditions of men who devoted their lives to doing the will of the Lord, are the traditions that we must follow or we will not go to heaven.
    The appearance of evil is evil, he may not be gay but he portrays himself to be gay.
    The Bible instructs us to be reverent and sober, waiving your hands in the air is far from that.

    Paul J. Mancil

    He's married to a beautiful woman named Stephanie and has a beautiful young daughter too. He loves the Lord and is worshiping his Savior. They all were worshiping God in this video.

  43. Amy Purdy

    Just beautiful

  44. CSimpleton

    This is one of those new demon worshiping, gay, charismatic church bands, how sacrilegious and blasphemous.

    Paul J. Mancil

    Such bondage. I feel really badly for you.

  45. Jacky Edwards

    This is just beautiful

  46. Foresthexomega

    Beautiful!What an amazing vocal control!

  47. Shay Shakespeare

    I LOVE THIS, and I'm proud I know all the words (:

  48. jlhavelka2306

    i have wanted it too

  49. LindyLooo99

    This is Avalon

  50. Nick & Jess Do It Best

    Avalon, so good! I miss them.

    Paul J. Mancil

    These four were the best the group ever was.
