Jesus is the One Thing Needful Don Fortner

(Tune: #300 More Secure is No One Ever LM Trochaic)


1.        Jesus is the One Thing needful,

O our precious Lord and Savior!

Ever true and ever faithful,

We will sing Your praise forever.


2.        Boundless fulness in Him dwelling,

Boundless grace for all His chosen,

Like a mighty river flowing

To all weary sinners broken.


3.        Mercy from Him overflowing

To the poor and tried believer,

And His blood in heaven pleading,

Brings salvation to us sinners.


4.        Trusting Christ, we are accepted,

Justified, our sins forgiven,

Holy as our dear Beloved,

And joint-heirs with Him of heaven!


5.        Yes, Christ is the One Thing needful,

Precious to believing sinners,

Ever true and ever faithful!

Be exalted, Lord, forever!
