    Because God Loves Me

    Gently

    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.
