Lyrics

No one can help you but Jesus,
He is your very best friend;
Ever have faith in His goodness,
And on His promise depend.

Refrain

No one can help you but Jesus,
Jesus alone, Jesus alone;
Tell Him your need, for He loveth
Ever to comfort His own.

No one can help you but Jesus,
No one but Jesus alone;
Tell Him your need, He will gladly
Succor and comfort His own.

Refrain

No one can help you but Jesus,
When you are burdened with grief,
Bring Him your trouble and sorrow,
And He will give you relief.
