291. Not a friend but Jesus

1 Not a friend but Jesus
Fully understands;
All the secret lieth
In His holy hands.

2 Not a heart that beateth
Beateth wholly true;
He alone who made us
Reads us through and through.

3 Not an eye around us
Reads the tale aright:
But in Him no darkness
Who is Light of light.

4 Not a hand uplifted
For our sorest need,
But His “I am with thee”
Maketh blest indeed.
