Only Thee, my soul’s Redeemer!
Whom have I in Heaven beside?
Who on earth, with love so tender,
All my wandering steps will guide?

Refrain

Only Thee, only Thee,
Loving Savior, only Thee.

Only Thee! no joy I covet
But the joy to call Thee mine—
Joy that gives the blest assurance,
Thou hast owned and sealed me Thine.

Refrain

Only Thee! I ask no other;
Thou art more than all to me;
Life, or health, or creature comfort—
I would give them all for Thee.

Refrain

Only Thee, whose blood has cleansed me,
Would my raptured vision see,
While my faith is reaching upward,
Ever upward, Lord, to Thee.
