Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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]
