9360. Our Best Friend

1 Jesus is a loving Savior,
He will peace and pardon give;
If you long for free salvation,
Only look to Him and live.

He will save you, He will save you,
Save you by His love and power;
He is waiting to receive you,
He is willing, doubt no more.

2 Earthly friends may oft forsake you,
In your time of greatest need,
But there’s One who’ll never leave you,
One who is a friend indeed. [Refrain]

3 When your path seems dark and dreary,
And your lot so hard to bear,
Only trust your loving Savior;
He will every burden share. [Refrain]

4 When our warfare here is ended,
When we reach that peaceful shore,
Then we’ll praise our dear Redeemer,
Praise Him there forevermore. [Refrain]
