No One Ever Cared For Me Like Jesus


No One Ever Cared For Me Like Jesus

Words and Music: C.F. Weigle

I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus,
Since I found in Him a friend so strong and true;
I would tell you how He changed my life completely,
He did something that no other friend could do.

No one ever cared for me like Jesus,
There’s no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me,
O how much He cared for me.

All my life was full of sin when Jesus found me,
All my heart was full of misery and woe;
Jesus placed His strong and loving arms about me,
And He led me in the way I ought to go.

No one ever cared for me like Jesus,
There’s no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me,
O how much He cared for me.

Ev’ry day He comes to me with new assurance,
More and more I understand His words of love;
But I’ll never know just why He came to save me,
Till some day I see His blessed face above.

No one ever cared for me like Jesus,
There’s no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me,
O how much He cared for me.

This song one of my favorites of all time. After coming back from the depths of despair and regaining his vibrant faith Charles Weigle wrote this beautiful song.

It tells my story, expresses my heart, and gives Christ glory. The dear man who wrote both the lyrics and music lived his last 15 years  in a cottage at Tenn. Temple University in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He was a friend and mentor to many and became a favorite person of both the students and faculty. He wrote over 1,000 songs in addition to preaching the good news of Jesus many, many years. What a wonderfully blessed legacy!
