Representative Text

1 A friend I have called Jesus,
Whose love is strong and true,
And never fails howe’er ’tis tried,
No matter what I do;
I sinned against this love of His,
But when I knelt to pray,
Confessing all my guilt to Him,
The sin-clouds rolled away.

Chorus:
It’s just like Jesus to roll the clouds away,
It’s just like Jesus to keep me day by day.
It’s just like Jesus all along the way,
It’s just like His great love.

2 Sometimes when clouds of trouble
Bedim the sky above,
I cannot see my Savior’s face,
I doubt His wondrous love;
But He, from Heaven’s mercy seat,
Beholding my despair,
In pity bursts the clouds between,
And shows me He is there. (Chorus)

3 When sorrow’s clouds o’ertake me,
And break upon my head,
When life seems worse than useless,
And I were better dead;
I take my grief to Jesus then,
Nor do I go in vain,
For heav’nly hope He gives that cheers
Like sunshine after rain. (Chorus)

4 Oh, I could sing forever
Of Jesus’ love divine,
Of all His care and tenderness
For this poor life of mine;
His love is in and over all,
And wind and waves obey
When Jesus whispers, “Peace, be still!”
And rolls the clouds away. (Chorus)
