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.

Chorus:
I’m happy with Jesus alone,
I’m happy with Jesus alone.
Tho’ poor and deserted, thank God I can say
I’m happy with 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. [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]

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