Give Me Jesus Alone – Hymn

0

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

Refrain :
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.

Refrain :
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.

Refrain :
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.

Refrain :
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.

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

The melody of this song appears to be based on the popular

Irish tune ‘Aislean an Oigfear’ arranged by John Andrew

Stevenson for the folk song ‘The Last Rose of Summer,’
