5218. Only Jesus

1. Only Jesus would I know,
Jesus, only Jesus!
He’s my portion here below,
Jesus, only Jesus!

Things of earth are trifling toys,
He my highest thought employs;
He the spring of all my joys,
Jesus, only Jesus.

2. Only Jesus knows my heart,
Jesus, only Jesus!
He alone can peace impart,
Jesus, only Jesus! [Refrain]

3. Only Jesus satisfies,
Jesus, only Jesus!
He my every want supplies,
Jesus, only Jesus! [Refrain]
