1 I’ve found a refuge from life’s care in Jesus,
I am hiding in His love divine;
He fully understands my soul’s deep longing,
And He whispers softly, “Thou art Mine.”

Only Jesus! Only Jesus!
Only He can satisfy;
Every burden becomes a blessing,
When I know my Lord is nigh.

2 I’ve found a precious joy in knowing Jesus,
Never dreamed of in this world of woe;
No clouds, however dark, can dim the radiance
Of the heav’nly light He doth bestow. (Chorus)

3 I’ve found a blessèd hope divine in Jesus,
’Tis a Day Star ever shining bright;
It fills my earthly way with heav’nly glory,
And it turns life’s darkness into light. (Chorus)
