106. My Precious Friend

1 I have a Friend, oh, such a Friend!
His precious life He gave me,
When on the cross He shed His blood
To ransom and to save me.

Refrain:
O Jesus, Saviour, precious Friend!
Abide with me unto the end;
With me, with me,
Abide unto the end.

2 I have a Friend, oh, such a Friend!
My sins He has forgiven;
He is my peace and righteousness,
My happiness and heaven. [Refrain]

3 I have a Friend, oh, such a Friend!
Whose mercy is unfailing,
Whose earnest pleas before the throne
For me is now availing. [Refrain]

4 I have a Friend, oh, such a Friend!
My hope and my salvation;
Let all the blood-washed bring to Him
Eternal acclamation. [Refrain]
