Alone with Jesus, ’tis so sweet!
To worship at His lovely feet,
To raise our hearts in grateful praise
For all His wondrous works and ways!

Alone with Jesus, in the storm,
He’ll keep us from all fear and harm,
If we but trust Him day by day,
Although it be a stormy way.

Alone with Jesus, all is well,
Beneath His smile my soul would dwell,
O Lord, how sweet to know and feel
Thy love and Thy eternal seal!

Alone with Jesus, to express
The perfect peace we here possess
An angel’s tongue might well employ;
Alone with Jesus, oh what joy!

Alone with Jesus, hour by hour
Preserved by His almighty power;
And when the storms of life are o’er,
With Him we’ll dwell forevermore.
