Representative Text

1 Nothing but the love of Jesus
Can supply my inmost need;
What tho' I have golden treasures?
He alone my soul can feed.

Chorus:
Only Jesus, only Jesus,
Thro' the wilderness can lead;
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Thro' the wilderness can lead.

2 Nothing but the love of Jesus
Can my longing satisfy;
From the fount of living waters,
If I drink not, I must die.

Chorus:
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Hears the fainting spirit's cry;
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Hears the fainting spirit's cry.

3 Nothing but the love of Jesus
Doth my wand'ring heart recall;
Nothing but His grace extended
Can restore me when I fall.

Chorus:
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Loves me notwithstanding all;
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Loves me notwithstanding all.

4 Nothing but the love of Jesus
Lights the way thro' sorrow's gloom,
Fills the barren waste with singing,
Makes the desert places bloom.

Chorus:
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Breaks the silence of the tomb;
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Breaks the silence of the tomb.
