1 Only a sinner, humble and low,
No one to love me, no where to go;
Beaten and driven, wretched indeed,
Who is the Friend to pity my need?
O it is Jesus! Jesus alone,
Dying for me, my sin to atone;
O it is Jesus! there may I go,
Jesus will hear me! Jesus will know!
2 Only a sinner, sorely dismayed,
Tempted and fallen, pleading for aid;
Dangers surround me, dark is the night,
Where is the One to guide me anight? [Refrain]
3 Only a sinner, weary my feet,
Lonely my journey where is retreat?
Dying afar from comforting love,
Who is the Friend my refuge to prove? [Refrain]
4 O it is Jesus, lowly and meek,
Waiting for me my pardon to speak;
Yes, it is Jesus, on Him I call,
Jesus, my joy, my life and my all! [Refrain]
