Representative Text

1 There's nothing so precious as Jesus to me;
Let earth with its treasures be gone;
I'm rich as can be when my Savior I see;
I'm happy with Jesus alone.

Refrain:
I'm happy with Jesus alone,
I'm happy with Jesus alone;
Though poor and deserted, thank God, I can say
I'm happy in Jesus alone.

2 When sinful and doomed to a life of despair,
No light on my pathway to shine,
'Twas Jesus who found me and made me an heir
To mansions of glory divine. [Refrain]

3 When nothing but death for my ransom could pay,
And make me accepted with God,
'Twas Jesus who freely Himself made a prey
And ransomed my soul with His blood. [Refrain]

4 'Twas Jesus who called me and showed me the way
To peace upon earth and in heav'n;
'Tis Jesus who teaches me daily to pray
And walk in the light He has giv'n. [Refrain]

5 Should father and mother forsake me below,
My bed upon earth be a stone,
I'll cling to my Savior who loves me, I know,
I'm happy with Jesus alone. [Refrain]

A-men.
