Give Me Jesus Alone


I am here a pilgrim stranger,
Give me Jesus alone;
He will guard my soul from danger,
Give me Jesus alone.

:
Give me Jesus alone,
Give me Jesus alone;
Till I reach my home in glory
Give me Jesus alone.
When the pow’rs of sin beset me,
Give me Jesus alone;
When my friends on earth forget me,
Give me Jesus alone.

:
Give me Jesus alone,
Give me Jesus alone;
Every hour and every moment,
Give me Jesus alone.
Though the world its praise should offer,
Give me Jesus alone;
With my Lord I’ll meekly suffer,
Give me Jesus alone.

:
Give me Jesus alone,
Give me Jesus alone;
Let the world deride or flatter,
Give me Jesus alone.
When my heart for joy is singing,
Give me Jesus alone;
Or when pain my heart is wringing,
Give me Jesus alone.

:
Give me Jesus alone,
Give me Jesus alone;
In the sunshine or the shadow,
Give me Jesus alone.
Passing through life’s verdant meadow,
Give me Jesus alone;
Or through death’s dark gloomy shadow,
Give me Jesus alone.

:
Give me Jesus alone,
Give me Jesus alone;
Whether life or death await me,
Give me Jesus alone.
