Representative Text

1 There is no other like Jesus,
Dying to ransom his foes;
Parent, or sister or brother,
None so much sympathy knows.
Friends who are faithful and loving,
Much of our trouble may share,
But they can never, like Jesus,
All of our burdens upbear.

There is no other like Jesus,
All of our sorrows he bore,
There is no other like Jesus,
Risen to suffer no more.

2 There is no other like Jesus,
When by the tempest we’re tossed,
None is so able to guide us,
When in the darkness we’re lost.
Friends who are tender and loving,
May in affliction stand by,
But they can never, like Jesus,
Comfort and healing supply. [Refrain]

3 There is no other like Jesus,
Jesus, the sinner’s best friend;
Lo! he will never forsake us,
But will go through to the end.
There is no other like Jesus
As thro’ the desert we roam
Or through the dark rolling river,
Pass to our heavenly home. [Refrain]
