47. My Greatest Friend is Jesus

1 My greatest friend is Jesus;
He left the throne of God,
This world of sorrow entered,
To save me by his blood.

Refrain:
My greatest friend is Jesus;
He saves me thro’ and thro’,
And by his grace I’ll prove it,
For what he says, I’ll do.

2 My greatest friend is Jesus,
He leads in pastures green,
Where calm and placid waters
Flow on in peace serene. [Refrain]

3 My greatest friend is Jesus,
He loveth even me;
I walk beside him daily
In sweet humility. [Refrain]

4 My greatest friend is Jesus,
I cast on him my care;
He bears it all so freely
In answer to my prayer. [Refrain]

5 He’ll be my friend forever;
When here I cease to be,
I’ll go and live with Jesus
Thro’ all eternity. [Refrain]
