Lyrics

No one can help you but Je­sus,
He is your ve­ry best friend;
Ever have faith in His good­ness,
And on His pro­mise de­pend.

Refrain

No one can help you but Je­sus,
Jesus alone, Je­sus alone;
Tell Him your need, for He lov­eth
Ever to com­fort His own.

No one can help you but Je­sus,
No one but Jes­us alone;
Tell Him your need, He will glad­ly
Succor and com­fort His own.

Refrain

No one can help you but Je­sus,
When you are bur­dened with grief,
Bring Him your trou­ble and sor­row,
And He will give you re­lief.
