51. He Is My Dearest Friend

1 I have been to Jesus and He heard my prayer,
I have told my Saviour all my grief and care;
He is always ready all my load to share,
For he is my dearest friend.

Refrain:
Yes He is my dearest friend,
Yes He is my dearest friend,
By His loving side, I would e’er abide,
For He is my dearest friend.

2 I have told to Jesus what I want to be,
I have told my Master all my dreams and He
All the time is ready with His help for me,
For he is my dearest friend. [Refrain]

3 I have told to Jesus all my wrong and sin,
I have been forgiven and made white within;
By His power the victory I always win,
For he is my dearest friend. [Refrain]

4 All along life’s journey till I reach the end,
Till my songs with angels up in heaven blend,
I will trust His love whatever He may send,
For he is my dearest friend. [Refrain]
