Representative Text

1 You may look for true pleasure in many a place,
You may look for true kindness in many a face,
You may long for the strength that shall win in life’s race;
But no one can help you life Jesus.

Refrain:
No one can help you like Jesus,
No one can help you like Jesus,
Never forget your needs will be met;
There’s no one can help you like Jesus.

2 In the storm that is wildest, He speaks to bring calm;
In the grief that is sorest, He bringeth sweet balm;
He will give in the night-time a wonderful psalm;
There’s no one can help you like Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When there’s none to deliver, He saves from distress;
For our sin He has pardon if we but confess;
O, His heart is o’erflowing with great tenderness,
There’s no one can help you like Jesus. [Refrain]
