Item Description...
You cut your teeth on this beloved hymn. Even before you knew anything about a personal Savior, you knew one thing for sure: Jesus loves me! This little song is backed by a great big story. And now, thanks to Rob Morgan's distinctive writing style, that amazing tale is being told in remarkable depth.

It's the story of two sisters-the Warners-who went from riches to rags, from the hustle and bustle of New York City to the isolation of a small island, and from a quiet ministry to young soldiers into the hearts of children worldwide. Including photos of the Warners' Revolutionary War-era home on Constitution Island, just offshore from West Point, this book explores the birth of this sweet song like never before. It also highlights stories about lives that have been changed by this simple, powerful refrain.

Readers from ages 8-80 will come to appreciate the very first hymn they ever knew in a fresh way in this book that makes a great gift for friends, as well as for church and school libraries.

The Story of Our Favorite Hymn...  Feb 17, 2007

This is a charming book, and although small, it is filled with a full account of the wonderful story of what is perhaps the best-known hymn in the English language, "Jesus Loves Me, This I Know."

Robert J. Morgan recounts the tale of Anna B Warner and her sister Susan, from their life of privilege in Manhattan to reduced circumstances, living in the shadow of the ramparts of the U S Military Academy at West Point. From their island home on the Hudson they offered hospitality and Bible Study to cadets, and a sense of home as well.

They wrote for a living, and the text of the hymn appeared in a novel which the sisters co-authored, called "Say and Seal". Soon thereafter, people were eager to be able to sing them; thus, William Bradbury wrote the tune to go with it that we know and can sing by heart. And in case we think that the theology is too simplistic, all we need remember is that the most celebrated theologian of the 20th Century, Dr. Karl Barth, considered the hymn the greatest theological discovery he ever made.

This is a good book to read and to give. Christian educators and pastors will especially relish the text and the accompanying archival photographs. The story of the Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington is an added bonus.
Not only for children  Aug 23, 2006
Few of us remember that this "children's song" has its roots with young men preparing for their military careers. When I took a trip to that academy and saw the links of that chain that once went across the river, protecting our country from foreign invasion, it pictured to me the chains of love that Jesus holds us with, not only in the young and innocent parts of our life, but also in our later man can pluck us out of his loving hands...for Jesus loves me this I KNOW!
