Jesus, My Only Hope ~ Hymn

I’m so thankful for Jesus, my only true hope!

Jesus, My Only Hope

Jesus, my only Hope, Friend ever dear,
Bend to my earnest prayer Thy gracious ear;
Come from Thy throne above, come and my dross remove,
Fill me with perfect love, Savior, to Thee.

Jesus, my only Hope, grant me Thy grace,
Teach me in joy and pain Thy hand to trace;
Keep Thou my heart in peace, bid ev’ry murmur cease,
Come and my faith increase, Savior, in Thee.

Jesus, my only Hope, Jesus, my King,
Help me with heart and voice Thy praise to sing;
Now let Thy beams divine bright o’er my pathway shine,
Draw me, O Savior mine, closer to Thee.

Jesus, my only Hope, be Thou my Guest;
Under Thy mighty wings, O let me rest,
Rest till the angel band home to the promised land
Bears me at Thy command, Savior, to Thee.

Words by Fanny Crosby

  1. I’m not familiar with this one either but I do love the words, especially that second verse. “Keep thou my heart in peace” is the phrase that really jumps out at me today.

  2. Oh I love this….”Jesus, my only Hope, Jesus, my King,
    Help me with heart and voice Thy praise to sing;
    Now let Thy beams divine bright o’er my pathway shine,
    Draw me, O Savior mine, closer to Thee.”

    That is my heart song!
