1 When I am tempted or when I am tried,
No one can help like Jesus;
When cares are many or sorrows betide,
No one can help like Jesus;
Nobody knows or can just understand,
Like the dear Saviour who’s holding my hand,
He knows my weakness and helps me to stand,
No one can help like Jesus.

Refrain:
No one can help like Jesus,
No one can help like Him,
He only knows my sorrow and woes,
No one can help like Jesus.

2 When foes assail me and rough grows the way,
No one can help like Jesus;
When comes the promise, “I’m with you alway,”
No one can help like Jesus;
Yes, He is with me through sunshine and storm,
Ever will guide me and keep me from harm,
Daily I lean on His strong, loving arm,
No one can help like Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When peace is filling my soul like a psalm,
No one can help like Jesus;
When He has spoken the storm to a calm,
No one can help like Jesus;
O He can give such a wonderful peace,
Joyful thanksgivings which never shall cease,
How from my burdens He gave me release,
No one can help like Jesus. [Refrain]
