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?


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.


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.


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