Representative Text

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

Jesus only, let me see,
Jesus only, none save He,
Then my song shall ever be—-
Jesus! Jesus only!

2 He's my Guide from day to day,
As I journey on life’s way;
Close beside Him let me stay—-
Jesus! Jesus only! (Refrain)

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

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