Representative Text

1 Jesus only, when the sinful heart
Would lay its burden down;
Jesus only takes the weary load
And bears it as His own.

Jesus only, Jesus only,
From the cradle to the grave;
Jesus only, Jesus only,
For no other name can save.

2 Jesus only helps the wayward feet
To keep the narrow way;
Jesus only guides the wav’ring soul,
Lest it in sin should stray. [Refrain]

3 Jesus only, when the weary one
May lay the armor down;
Jesus only takes the heavy cross,
And gives the shining crown. [Refrain]

4 Jesus only, when the ransomed soul
Has reached the “Golden shore!”
Jesus only, this shall be my song,
Forever, evermore. [Refrain]
