A Favorite Hymn

No One Ever Cared for Me Like Jesus
Words and Music by C.F. Weigle

Chorus
No one ever cared for me like Jesus;
There's no other friend so kind as He.
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me;
O how much He cared for me.

I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus,
Since I found in Him a friend so strong and true.
I would tell you how He changed my life completely;
He did something no other friend could do.

Chorus
No one ever cared for me like Jesus;
There's no other friend so kind as He.
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me;
O how much He cared for me.

All my life was full of sin when Jesus found me;
All my heart was full of misery and woe,
Jesus placed His strong arms about me
And He led me in the way I ought to go.

Chorus
No one ever cared for me like Jesus;
There's no other friend so kind as He.
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me;
O how much He cared for me.

Ev'ry day He comes to me with new assurance;
More and more I understand His word of love.
But I'll never know just why He came to save me,
Till someday I see His blessed face above.

Chorus
No one ever cared for me like Jesus;
There's no other friend so kind as He.
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me;
O how much He cared for me.

I love that hymn. I am not sure what is meant by:
I'll never know just why He came to save me,
Till someday I see His blessed face above.


One thing I especially appreciate about it is the fact that when it says Oh, how much He cared for me, I am reminded of His hanging on the cross, taking on all the sins of the whole world, of which I am a part. He really cared for us! He really cared for me.
He laid down His life to make us His friends. Only this sacrifice could take away our sin and darkness. Praise His name.
