He knew me then, He knows me now
And He died for me
He loved me then,   and   He loves me   now
Oh, how can it be
He saw   my face, He knew the place
That I would be today
He   knew   me   then, He knows   me now
And He   loves me
Some people say that He died one day
But that was long ago
Well, I’m sure that He was a very good man
But me He did not know
Well, listen, my friend, what I say is true
That He knew me and He sure knew you
He knew you then, He knows you now
And He loves you
He knew you then, He knows you now
And He died for you
He loved you then and He loves you now
Oh, I know it’s true
He saw your face, He knew the place
That you would be today
He knew you then, He knows you now
And He loves you
He knew us then, He knows us now
And He loves us still somehow
