I Love to Learn of Jesus Christ

1. I love to learn of Jesus Christ.

I love the gospel story—

How God sent down His firstborn Son

To teach us of His glory.

My parents teach me how to pray

To Heav’nly Father daily.

They teach me of Christ’s suffering

And how He came to save me.

2. My Savior is my constant guide,

Though I may seem to wander.

He teaches me to love the truth

And lifts my eyes beyond here.

And when I walk down lonely roads,

He does not leave me friendless.

He gave His very life for me;

His love for me is endless.

3. When Jesus rises o’er the hills

His many thousands bringing,

I, too, would join the angel throng

And lift my voice in singing.

So when I leave this life behind,

I will not, will not sorrow,

For I shall meet at Jesus’ knee

With loved ones on the morrow.
