1 Who doth know the secret pain I feel?
None but Jesus, only Jesus;
Hidden wounds no human touch can heal?
None but Jesus my Lord.

Refrain:
None but Jesus, only Jesus,
Can support and comfort me;
None but Jesus, only Jesus,—
Dearest, truest Friend is He.

2 Who can speak the words that cheer and bless?
None but Jesus, only Jesus;
Give relief from want and weariness?
None but Jesus my Lord. [Refrain]

3 Who can help me overcome my foes?
None but Jesus, only Jesus;
Save from sin and from these earthly woes?
None but Jesus my Lord. [Refrain]

4 Who can shield from ev’ry wind that blows?
None but Jesus, only Jesus;
Who can give my troubled heart repose?
None but Jesus my Lord. [Refrain]

5 Who will be my never changing Friend?
None but Jesus, only Jesus;
Make life’s pathway radiant to the end?
None but Jesus my Lord. [Refrain]

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
