156. Jesus! What a Friend for Sinners

1 Jesus! what a friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Savior makes me whole.

Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

2 Jesus! what a strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in Him;
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my strength, my victory wins.[Chorus]

3 Jesus! what a help in sorrow!
While the billows o'er me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my comfort, helps my soul.[Chorus]

4 Jesus! what a guide and keeper!
While the tempest still is high,
Storms about me, night o'er takes me,
He, my pilot hears my cry.[Chorus]

5 Jesus! I do now receive Him,
More than all in Him I find;
He hath granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine.[Chorus]
