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.

Refrain:
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. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

4 Jesus! I do now receive Him,
more than all in Him I find,
He has granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine. [Refrain]
