Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 No one, save Jesus only,
Can bear my sins away;
No one, save Jesus only,—
And unto Him I pray;
No one can cleanse this heart of sin,
And make it white as snow.

No one, save Jesus only,
No one, save Jesus only,
No one, save Jesus only,—
And unto Him I go.

2 No one, save Jesus only,
Can purify my soul;
No one, save Jesus only,
Can make my spirit whole;
No one can fit it for the skies,
Or duty here below; [Refrain]

3 No one, save Jesus only,
Can bear my soul above;
No one, save Jesus only,
Can fill it with His love;
No one can make its happiness
As streams eternal flow. [Refrain]
