1 Are you looking for a friend,
One who will your life defend,
A friend indeed, whose love is deep and true;
There is one close by your side,
And with you He would confide
He is waiting to relieve and comfort you.

This friend is Jesus,
He died on the cross to save you from sin;
This friend who will keep to the end,
This wonderful friend is Jesus.

2 Are you looking for a friend,
One on whom you can depend,
A friend who standeth true when others fail;
You will find the Lord, indeed,
Is a friend in every need,
And He bids you have the faith on Him to call. [Refrain]

3 He’s the dearest in the world,
For when human lips are curled,
He’s precious, oh, so precious, day by day,
And He’s waiting now for you,
For your heart and service, too;
Will you take Him as your friend while now you may? [Refrain]
