Verse 1
There's a place I love to tarry
When my soul is sad, oppressed,
'Tis alone with Christ my Saviour,
Where He bids me `Come and rest.`

Chorus
Just to be alone with Jesus,
Just to hear Him softly say:
`Fear not, though the world forsake you,
`Lo I'm with you alway.`

Verse 2
When the cares of life are heavy,
And beneath my cross I bend;
Then I go alone with Jesus,
For He is my dearest Friend.

Chorus
Just to be alone with Jesus,
Just to hear Him softly say:
`Fear not, though the world forsake you,
`Lo I'm with you alway.`

Verse 3
When the tempter would assail me,
Jesus bids me to Him flee;
He's my Refuge, Friend and Saviour,
He is all in all to me.

Chorus
Just to be alone with Jesus,
Just to hear Him softly say:
`Fear not, though the world forsake you,
`Lo I'm with you alway.`
