Words and music by Rev. J. Roel Lungay

Dear Jesus, I love you
How I don't know
Please show me the way.

Dear Jesus, my Savior,
My friend, my Lord.
You're all that I want
And all that I need.

Take me with you, Oh Lord,
Carry me through
For in you, only in you
Can I find my peace.
Keep me in your goodness, Lord
This I pray
Yes, in you, only in you,
Can I find my peace.

Dear Jesus, I love you
I come to you
Take good care of me.

Dear Jesus, I give you
My self, my soul -
All that I am and all that I'll be.

(Repeat Refrain twice)

Dear Jesus, I thank you
And I love you!
