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.)
2. 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).
