30. Only Jesus

1 There’s a Shepherd who goes o’er the mountains steep
To bring home the lost and the wan’ring sheep;
O love and compassion so strong and deep!
For the Shepherd who seeks is Jesus.

Come ye from sin’s dark mountain,
Come where the sweet flow’rs grow;
O come ye to Calv’ry’s fountain,
Come where the living waters flow.

2 There’s a light that is shining o’er life’s dark sea,
Before whose bright beaming the shadows flee—
A God-given beacon to you and me
For the Light of the World is Jesus. [Refrain]

3 There is Water of Life that is free to all,
Though sin-stained and wounded by many a fall;
“O come, ye that thirst,” heed the welcome call,
For the Water of Life is Jesus. [Refrain]

4 There is Life-giving Bread for the heart’s great need,
Whereon all the hungry may come and fee;
O dear starving soul, here is food indeed!
For the Bread of the World is Jesus. [Refrain]
