Representative Text

1 Alone with Jesus! oh, how sweet,
In blest communion Him to meet;
No other time to me so dear,
So full of comfort, hope and cheer.

Refrain:
Alone with Jesus, all alone,
Most precious hour I’ve ever known,
My cares and sorrows all depart,
When talking with Him, heart to heart.

2 Alone with Jesus! oh, how sweet
To sit and learn at His dear feet.
Wonder of wonders, could it be
That He’d reveal Himself to me? [Refrain]

3 Alone with Jesus! oh, how sweet
To kneel before the mercy-seat;
There all my weakness I confess,
And Jesus stoops my soul to bless. [Refrain]

4 Alone with Jesus! oh, how sweet,
How calm and blissful the retreat.
My troubled spirit He doth still,
With nameless peace my heart doth fill. [Refrain]
