Only Jesus would I know,
Jesus, only Jesus!
He’s my portion here below,
Jesus, only Jesus!

Refrain

Things of earth are trifling toys,
He my highest thought employs;
He the spring of all my joys,
Jesus, only Jesus.

Only Jesus knows my heart,
Jesus, only Jesus!
He alone can peace impart,
Jesus, only Jesus!

Refrain

Only Jesus satisfies,
Jesus, only Jesus!
He my every want supplies,
Jesus, only Jesus!
