If you know where to get a good pho­to of Hodge (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


There is just one way for you all to come;
There is just one road that will lead you home;
There is just one gate to the realms of day—
The blessèd Je­sus is the only way.


Jesus is the way—the only way;
Lovingly He calleth, thus the Scriptures say,
Whosoever will, let Him come today—
The blessèd Je­sus is the only way!

There is just one smile that can cheer your path;
There is just one name that can save from wrath;
There is just one life that could e’er atone—
O blessèd Je­sus, it is Thine alone!


There is just one fount—there is just one cross—
There is just one help for the sinner’s loss;
There is just one hope—all in all to me—
O blessèd Je­sus, it is none but Thee!
