Jesus Loves Me

Album: Love Ran Red (2014)


  • The second single off Love Ran Red, this was penned by Chris Tomlin with Nashville songwriter Ben Glover (Colton Dixon's "Love Has Come for Me," Lee Brice's "Hard To Love") and Hillsong worship leader Reuben Morgan (Tomlin's "Awakening," "Love So High" and "We Glorify Your Name"). "The strength of the songwriting for me comes from collaboration with friends," Tomlin explained to Billboard magazine.

    "We're very much like-minded and with the same passion," he added. "It's not 'We're just here to write a single for a hit song.' We really want to write God songs -- songs that come from somewhere special and go past these artists, past the songwriters and become songs that people sing in their churches. That's always been the goal."
