1 For salvation full and free,
Purchased once on Calvary,
Christ alone shall be my plea—-
Jesus! Jesus only.

Jesus only, let me see,

As I journey on life’s way;
Close beside Him let me stay—-
Jesus! Jesus only. (Chorus)

3 May my model ever be
Christ the Lord, and none save He,
That the world may see in me
Jesus! Jesus only. (Chorus)

4 He shall reign from shore to shore,
His the glory evermore—-
Heav’n and earth shall bow before
Jesus! Jesus only. (Chorus)
