Only Thee

Representative Text

1 Only Thee, my soul’s Redeemer!
Whom have I in Heaven beside?
Who on earth, with love so tender,
All my wandering steps will guide?

Only Thee, only Thee,
Loving Savior, only Thee.

2 Only Thee! no joy I covet
But the joy to call Thee mine—
Joy that gives the blest assurance,
Thou hast owned and sealed me Thine. [Refrain]

3 Only Thee! I ask no other;
Thou art more than all to me;
Life, or health, or creature comfort—
I would give them all for Thee. [Refrain]

4 Only Thee, whose blood has cleansed me,
Would my raptured vision see,
While my faith is reaching upward,
Ever upward, Lord, to Thee. [Refrain]
