1 Who for blindness gave me sight?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who for weakness gives me might?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who, when angry billows roll,
Bringeth quiet to my soul?
Who will help me reach the goal?
Jesus, only Jesus.

Jesus, He is my King,
Jesus, only Jesus;
Of His love I’ll ever sing,
Jesus, only Jesus.

2 Who my heart with gladness fills?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who its restless longing stills?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who gives happiness and joy,
That all earth could not destroy?
Who gives peace without alloy?
Jesus, only Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Who from death my soul has freed?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who has all I want or need?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who can banish doubt and fears?
Who, in trouble always cheers?
Who each faint petition hears?
Jesus, only Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Yes, ‘tis Jesus makes me strong,
Jesus, only Jesus;
‘Tis to Him that I belong—
Jesus, only Jesus;
Only Jesus all the way,
Only Him from day to day;
Evermore my Guide and stay,
Jesus, only Jesus. [Refrain]
