1099. Only Jesus

1 Only Jesus, precious Jesus,
Can our every sorrow know;
He alone can truly help us
Through life’s journey here below.

Refrain:
Other friends may bless and comfort,
Speak a kind and cheering word;
But the balm to heal the heartache
Only Jesus can afford.

2 Only Jesus, precious Jesus,
When life’s thorns have pierced the heart,
Can relieve the wounded spirit,
Needful help and grace impart. [Refrain]

3 Only Jesus, precious Jesus,
When temptation’s billows roll,
Can command the angry tempest,
Strengthen, soothe the trembling soul. [Refrain]

4 Only Jesus, precious Jesus,
He alone in life and death,
Can support me and I’ll trust Him,
Till my life’s last fleeting breath. [Refrain]
