Representative Text

1 Give me no earthly treasures,
Glory, or pomp, or pride;
Only the simple pleasures
Found at the Saviour’s side.

Jesus, only Jesus,
He is enough for me;
Jesus, only Jesus,
Until eternity.

2 There is relief from sorrow,
Never a wish denied,
Only today or morrow,
Joy at my Master’s side. [Refrain]

3 Wrecked on the rocks of sadness,
Out on the stormy tide;
Come to the port of gladness,
Close by the Saviour’s side. [Refrain]
