Do you know what album it is on?  There is so many songs called "Jesus".  I now have the words but need the sheet music.

I owed a debt I couldn't pay, It was growing every day,
Then Jesus paid it all for me,
Gave His life on Calvary, Gave it there for you and me,
Oh, Jesus, I love Him yes I do,

He came a long long way from heaven
To take away all sin and strife,
He came a long long way from heaven,
To give to us eternal life,

A greater love was never shown,
A greater man I've never known
Than Jesus the lonely Nazarene,
???????????
???????????
Jesus, I love him, yes I do.

This is from memory and the best I can remember.
Hope it helps.

I owed debt I couldn't pay, and it was growing every day
But Jesus, ended all for me
On the cross of calvary, he died for men like you and me
But the savior I love him, yes I do

He came a long long way, from heaven
To take away our sins and strife
He came a long long way from heaven
To give to us, eternal life

They crucified the savior king, but he was not the one to blame
Oh Father, forgive these me he cried
And to the thief there on his side, he said to him before he died
This day, be with me in paradise

3rd verse:

A greater man was never known.
A greater love was never shown
than Jesus, the lonely Nazarene.

A A greater love was never shown,
A greater man I've never known
Than Jesus the lonely Nazarene,
He took my place at cavalry
he bore the pain for you and me 
Jesus, I love him, yes I do.

I fought a debt I couldn’t pay
It was growing every day
But Jesus paid it all for me,
He gave his life on Calvary
Gave it there for you and me
Oh Jesus I love yes I do.

Chores:
He came a long long way from heaven
To take away all sin and strife
He came a long long way from heaven
To give to us eternal live

They Crucified the Holy King, but he
Was not to blame, oh father forgive them
Of their sin. Now to the thief there by his
Side he said to him before he died, today
Thou be with me in paradise.

Chores:
He came a long long way from heaven
To take away all sin and strife
He came a long long way from heaven
To give to us eternal live

A greater love was never shown a greater
Man was never  known than Jesus the lowly
Nazarene oh no he never lost his faith
He died for the human race oh Jesus I love
him yes I do

I sang this song for many years in church. I first heard it on an album by the Florida boys

No greater love was ever shown
No greater man was ever known
Than Jesus the lowly Nazarene
Although he never had great fame
The cleansing power was in his Dear Name
Oh He's my Saviour
I love him yes I do.
