Lyrics

In the dew of early youth,
None can help like Jesus;
Seeking after pearls of truth,
None can help like Jesus;
He’s the source of living light,
He will guide your steps aright;

Refrain

None can help like Jesus,
No! none like Jesus.

In the midday whirl of care,
None can help like Jesus;
When you heavy burdens bear,
None can help like Jesus;
He will give you sweetest rest,
All who trust in Him are blest;

Refrain

In the twilight’s fading glow,
None can help like Jesus;
When your strength is ebbing slow,
None can help like Jesus;
He will shield from death’s alarms,
Fold you in His loving arms.

Refrain
