This is going to be a short post.
Sometimes a song pops in my head and just runs around in there all day.

That’s what happened with this one, so I thought maybe the Lord wants me to share it with you.

I Don’t Know Why Jesus Loved Me
I don’t know why Jesus loved me
I don’t know why He cared
I don’t know why He sacrificed His life
Oh, but I’m glad, so glad He did

Where would I be if Jesus didn’t love me?
Where would I be if Jesus didn’t care?
Where would I be if He hadn’t sacrificed His
life
Oh, but I’m glad, so glad He did

He left His mighty throne in glory
To bring to us redemption story
And then He died but He rose again
Just for you and me
Oh, but I’m glad, I’m glad He did.

I don’t know why Jesus loved me (Oh I don’t
know why)
I don’t know why He cared (Oh I don’t know
why)
I don’t know why He sacrificed His life
Oh, but I’m glad (so glad), so glad He did
Oh, but I’m glad (so glad), so glad He did

I Don’t Know Why Jesus Loved Me was written by Grammy Award winning songwriter and composer Andre Crouch (1942-2015), and first appeared on the album “Keep on Singing” recorded by Andrae Crouch and the Disciples in 1971.

Although Andrae went to be with the Lord in 2015, a website containing his biography and information about all his music is still up and running. You can find it here.

This video of a reunion of The Disciples in 2011 was uploaded by YouTube by Boyd Matson.  Andrae is at the piano, of course, and his twin sister Saundra is the singer on the far left.

See you in church.
