1 Jesus is my Friend most precious,
Never friend doth love as He;
Should I leave this Friend so gracious.
Spurn His wondrous love for me.
No! nor friend nor foe shall sever
Me from Him who loves me so;
His shall be my will for ever.
There above, and here below.
2 Bitter death for me He suffered:
From all guilt He set me free;
To His Father He hath offered
Everlasting prayer for me.
Who is he that would condemn me?
Christ hath saved me by His grace;
Who can from my Saviour draw me?
I am safe in His embrace.
3 And I am persuaded ever,
Life nor death shall tear me from
Christ, my blessed Lord and Saviour;
Present things nor things to come,
Height, nor depth, nor fear, nor favor,
Aught that heaven and earth afford,
Can me from God's love e'er sever,
Love revealed in Christ our Lord.
