Representative Text

1 Would you be this day made whole,
Freedom gain from sin's control?
Jesus can redeem your soul,--
Jesus, Jesus only.

Chorus:
In the darkness do not live,
Be not sad or lonely;
Jesus, light and joy can give,--
Jesus, Jesus only.

2 Jesus tenderly will lead,
Give you grace for all your need,
And your cause in Heaven's plead,--
Jesus, Jesus only. [Chorus]

3 Oh, what friend can love us so?
Who, like Him, our hearts can know,
Who hath borne our ev'ry woe?
Jesus, Jesus only. [Chorus]

4 He alone our souls can guide
Over death's dark, swelling tide,
Home at last, and by His side--
Jesus, Jesus only. [Chorus]
