Because God Loves Me

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


1. God planned the day; he planned the night.

He gave the darkness, then the light,

The sky of blue, the sun so bright,

Because he loves me.

2. God gave me a family,

A cheerful heart and eyes to see,

That I might live here happily,

Because he loves me.
