136. I'll Be a Friend to Jesus

1 They tried my Lord and Master,
With no one to defend;
Within the halls of Pilate
He stood without a friend.

Refrain:
I’ll be a friend to Jesus,
My life for Him I’ll spend;
I’ll be a friend to Jesus,
Until my years shall end.

2 The world may turn against Him,
I’ll love Him to the end,
And while on earth I’m living,
My Lord shall have a friend. [Refrain]

3 I’ll do what He may bid me;
I’ll go where He may send;
I’ll try each flying moment
To prove that I’m His friend. [Refrain]

4 To all who need a Savior,
My Friend I’ll recommend;
Because He brought salvation,
Is why I am His friend. [Refrain]
