Because He Loved Me

Music and Lyrics by Morris Stancil

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

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 a cross,
Great was the pain and the loss.
He suffered it all,  (He suffered it all)
Because He loved me.  (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 loved me so,
Now I am His, He's mine, I know
He suffered it all,  (He suffered it all)
Because He loved me.  (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 that third and glorious day,
God came and rolled the stone away.
He rose from the dead  (He rose from the dead)
Because He loved me.  (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 loved me so,
Now I am His, He's mine, I know
He suffered it all,  (He suffered it all)
Because He loved me.  (Because He loved me)
