During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

1. Only Jesus would I know,
Jesus, only Jesus!
He’s my portion here below,
Jesus, only Jesus!

Refrain
Things of earth are trifling toys,
He my highest thought employs;
He the spring of all my joys,
Jesus, only Jesus.

2. Only Jesus knows my heart,
Jesus, only Jesus!
He alone can peace impart,
Jesus, only Jesus! [Refrain]

3. Only Jesus satisfies,
Jesus, only Jesus!
He my every want supplies,
Jesus, only Jesus! [Refrain]
