Overview

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.
