Representative Text

1 Jesus only is my motto,
Jesus only is my song,
Jesus only is my heart-tho't,

Refrain:

None but Jesus help me sing;
Fill me ever with Thy presence,
Jesus, Jesus, Lord and King.

Only He to choose my changes,
None but Jesus ev'ry day. [Refrain]

3 Jesus only is my Captain,
He shall lead me forth to fight;
Jesus only is my armor,
Jesus only is my might. [Refrain]

4 Then away with ev'ry idol,
Let my Lord be all to me;
Jesus only is my Master,
Jesus only let me see. [Refrain]
