Friendship with Jesus
A friend of Jesus, oh, what bliss
that one so weak as I;
Should ever have a Friend like this
to lead me to the sky.
Friendship with Jesus, fellowship divine;
Oh what blessed sweet communion,
Jesus is a Friend of mine.
A Friend when other friendships cease,
a Friend when others fail;
A Friend who gives me joy and peace,
a Friend who will prevail!
A Friend to lead me in the dark,
a Friend who knows the way;
A Friend to steer my weak, frail bark,
a Friend my debts to pay!
A Friend when sickness lays me low,
a Friend when death draws near;
A Friend as thro’ the vale I go,
a Friend to help and cheer.
A Friend when life’s rough voyage is o’er,
a Friend when death is past;
A Friend to greet on heaven’s shore,
a Friend when home at last.
