1 I’ve tried in vain a thousand ways
My fears to quell, my hopes to raise;
But what I need, the Bible says,
Is only Jesus! Is Jesus!
2 My soul is night, my heart is steel,
I cannot see, I cannot feel;
For light, for life, I must appeal
In faith to Jesus! To Jesus!
3 He died, He lives, He reigns, He pleads;
There’s love in all His words and deeds;
There’s all a guilty sinner needs,
For He is Jesus! Is Jesus!
4 Tho’ some should sneer, and some should blame,
I’ll go with all my guilt and shame;
He’ll save from sin, because His name
Is ever Jesus! Is Jesus!
