Jesus loves me (VBS version) (The Go Fish Guys)

An American classic, the song most children learn (often with simplified sign language motions) here in the VBS version (= Vacation Bible School), by The Go Fish Guys, 3 parents who joined to make their children's Bible study more fun.

Sure the video is home-made and the singers are basically amateur, but the song is a must in American culture and this version is really catchy.

You can see the original song (normal version) here

And one of the most famous versions by Whitney Houston.

Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to Him belong
They are weak but He is strong

Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
This I know
Well, I say
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
For the Bible tells me so

Jesus loves me, He who died
Heavens gates to open wide
He who washed away my sin
Let His little child come in

Singing
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
This I know
Well, I say
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
For the Bible tells me so

Every now and then when you feel like you are on your own
Sing this song and remember you are never all alone
Cause Jesus loves you
Jesus loves you

Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
This I know
Yes, I know
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me (yes, He does)
For the Bible tells me so

Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
This I know
Well, I say
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
For the Bible tells me so

Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to Him belong
They are weak but He is strong

JESUS=  /dʒi:zəs/ 

FOR= Because.

TELLS ME SO= Tells me that.

BELONG= If something belongs to you, you own it, you have it, it's yours.

HEAVENS GATES TO OPEN WIDE= (hyperbaton*) To open wide the gates of heaven.
OPEN WIDE is to open completely. The oposite is to "open ajar" (just a little)
*Hyperbaton is a figure of speech which changes the normal order of a sentence to make it sound strange and more beautiful (so it can easily be found in poetry and song lyrics).

EVERY NOW AND THEN= Sometimes.

ON YOUR OWN= Alone.

CAUSE= (also spelled "cuz" in AmE and "coz" in BrE) Because
