1 Is there a Friend on whom sinners may call?
Yes, there’s one, yes, there’s one;
A Friend who will help you whatever befall?
Yes, there’s one, only one;
Jesus of Nazareth, crucified,
On the cross for sinners died;
He is a Friend when there’s none beside;
Yes, there’s one, only one.

2 Is there a Saviour for souls that are lost?
Yes, there’s one, yes, there’s one;
A Saviour who’ll rescue, tho’ great is the cost?
Yes, there’s one, only one;
Jesus of Nazareth, crucified,
On the cross for sinners died;
He is the Saviour, there’s none beside;
Yes, there’s one, only one.

3 Is there a refuge from sorrow and sin?
Yes, there’s one, yes, there’s one;
A refuge for all who would enter in?
Yes, there’s one, only one;
Jesus of Nazareth, crucified,
On the cross for sinners died;
He is the refuge, there’s none beside;
Yes, there’s one, only one.

4 Is there a haven of rest from all care?
Yes, there’s one, yes, there’s one;
A haven where Satan can never ensnare?
Yes, there’s one, only one;
Jesus of Nazareth, crucified,
On the cross for sinners died;
He is the resting place, there abide;
Yes, there’s one, only one.

5 Is there a heaven where we all may meet?
Yes, there’s one, yes, there’s one;
Where loved ones who’ve gone on before we may greet?
Yes, there’s one, only one;
Jesus of Nazareth, crucified,
On the cross for sinners died;
With Him in heaven the saved abide;
Yes, there’s one, only one.
