Frances Matney Woodard (1922 – 1991) was born in Huntington, Texas the eldest daughter of a Methodist minister. After working for the US Military during World War 2, she attended and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. After marrying, she settled in Longview, Texas where she was very active as a Sunday school teacher, youth & children’s choir director, church secretary, choir member, songwriter, and soloist at her Church and throughout East Texas.

She was a Spirit-filled believer who loved the Lord. She was a prolific writer who dedicated her last years in this world to writing songs and poetry, many that were never distributed or published outside the family. I am very proud to share some of her writing with the world. I pray that it blesses you. — Harrison Woodard

 

No One Like Jesus

By Frances Matney Woodard

(1922 – 1991)

There’s no one who will listen

There is no one to really care

No one to talk with

No one to walk with

But Jesus is always there.

There’s no one quite like Jesus

There’s no one just the same

No one so perfect

No one so precious

But Jesus – praise His name!

Go on – on your journey

Thru this life

So full of woe

No one else will be a friend

That I know.

Unless he’s been to the valley

And over to the other side

Then he’s willing to turn and listen

And walk by your side.

Friends turn away and leave you

Loved ones don’t understand

Only Jesus can you trust in

When He stretches forth His hand.
