Lyrics

Speak to me on­ly of Je­sus,
Tell of the cross that He wore,
Tell of the shame and the sor­row,
Tell of the bur­den He bore.

Refrain

Speak to me on­ly of Je­sus,
Dying on Cal­va­ry’s tree,
Speak to me on­ly of Je­sus,
His name is so pre­cious to me.

Speak to me on­ly of Je­sus,
Tell of His grace day by day,
Tell how the blood of atone­ment
Washes my guilt all away.

Refrain

Speak to me on­ly of Je­sus,
Tell of His won­der­ful love,
Tell how He came as a Sav­ior,
Down from the glo­ry above.

Refrain

Speak to me on­ly of Je­sus,
Tell of His mer­cy so free,
Tell how, when lost in the dark­ness,
Jesus came seek­ing for me.
