Full Text

1 Let earth’s brightest pleasures vanish,
Let its gems and riches flee;
Give to me my Saviour, Jesus,
And His love so full and free.

Refrain:
Give me Jesus, only Jesus,
Grace and mercy from above;
With Him I shall ne’er be lonely,
Give me Jesus and His love.

2 In my sorrow Jesus comforts
Till each bitter trial is o’er,
With Him I shall ne’er be lonely,
Give me Jesus, nothing more. [Refrain]

3 In the hour of great temptation,
Let me to my Saviour fly;
Jesus, while on earth I linger,
Jesus, when at last I die. [Refrain]
