    The piece of music which was written for the Etobicoke Band while Len Ballantine was bandmaster there. The tune used is Unsworth, and is based on the following words from the Salvation Army Song Book:

    1. My Jesus, I love thee, I know thou art mine,
    For thee all the pleasures of sin I resign;
    My gracious Redeemer, my Saviour art thou,
    If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

    2. I love thee because thou hast first loved me,
    And purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree;
    I love thee for wearing the thorns on thy brow,
    If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

    3. I will love thee in life, I will love thee in death,
    And praise thee as long as thou lendest me breath;
    And say, when the death-dew lies cold on my brow:
    If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

    4. In mansions of Glory and endless delight,
    I'll ever adore thee and dwell in thy sight;
    I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow:
    If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

    The author is William Ralph Featherstone (1846-73).

    My Jesus, I love thee, I know thou art mine,
    For thee all the pleasures of sin I resign;
    My gracious Redeemer, my Saviour art thou,
    If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

    I love thee because thou first lovèd me,
    And purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree;
    I love thee for wearing the thorns on thy brow,
    If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

    I will love in life, I will love thee in death,
    And praise thee as long as thou lendest me breath;
    And say, when the death-dew lies cold on my brow;
    If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

    In mansions of Glory and endless delight,
    I'll ever adore thee and dwell in thy sight;
    I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow;
    If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

    The first verse is strangely similar to that of Caleb Jarvis Taylor (1803) suggested in the posting by brassneck previously.
