1. To whom can I go but to Jesus
When tempted to doubt and despair?
He only can heal my diseases,
He only will answer my prayer.

To whom can I go? To whom can I go
But to the dear Savior who loveth me so?
This wonderful friend
Is true to the end:
To whom can I go but Jesus?

2. To whom can I go but to Jesus?
Above me the tempest may break:
He surely will save me from danger,
His child He will never forsake. [Refrain]

3. To whom can I go but to Jesus?
Who loves me so fondly as He
Who died on the cross to redeem me,
And liveth my helper to be? [Refrain]

4. To whom can I go but to Jesus?
He knoweth the way that I take;
His sheep He will surely deliver;
His own He will never forsake. [Refrain]
