    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.`
