115. My Dearest Friend

1 Blessings ev’rywhere abound,
But the sweetest I have found,
Is the best one God could send,
Jesus Christ, my dearest friend.

Jesus loves me day by day,
He will help me all the way;
On His goodness I depend,
Jesus is my dearest friend.

2 Jesus knows my daily need,
And His arm is strong, indeed;
He is near me to defend,
Jesus is my dearest friend. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is my trusted guide,
Walking closely at my side;
Till my life on earth shall end,
He will be my dearest friend. [Refrain]

4 When for me the gates shall swing,
Where the happy angels sing,
Everlasting days I’ll spend,
With my best and dearest friend. [Refrain]
