My God Loves Me

This simple hymn about God's love is often used with children - but can be used with all age groups.

It is set to a section of the tune of the French song, "Plaisir d'amour", ("The Joy of love") which was written by Jean-Paul-Égide Martini (1741-1816), and is also used for the English song "I Can't Help Falling in Love With You".

There are a number of different sets of lyrics in use, and determining who wrote each one is difficult.

The song has also been translated to many other  languages.

1.My God loves me.
His love will never end.
He rests with - in my heart
For my God loves me.

2. His gentle hand
He stretches over me.
Though storm-clouds threaten the day
He will set me free.

3. He comes to me
In sharing bread and wine,
He brings me life that will reach
Past the end of time.

4. My God loves me,
His faithful love endures.
And I will live like a child
Held in love secure.

5. The joys of love
As offerings now we bring,
The pains of love will be lost
In the praise we sing.

An alternative verse, which is sometimes used by itself is:

My God loves me
And all the wonders I see
The rainbow shines through my window
My God loves me.

An alternative set of lyrics sometimes used:

My God loves me.
And all the wonders I see,
Are all small signs of the love,
My God has for me.

He calls my name
To him no one else is the same,
To him I'm not lost in the crowd,
To Him I'm me.

My God loves me
Because of this I can see
In spit of all my fault,
He still loves me.

My God loves me,
O what a mystery
That God should share his love,
With a sinner like me.

  1. I am aware of another verse. From memory it goes:

    My God died for me
    On the cross of calvary,
    He died for your sins and my sins
    My God loves me
