1 Do you need a friend to help you
In life’s darkest hour,
When you struggle with temptation,
Feel its deadly pow’r?
There is One, above all others
Will your cause defend;
You can always count on Jesus,
He’s my Friend.

Refrain:
He’s my Friend, with Him I cannot fail,
He’s my Friend, with Him I shall prevail,
Tho’ all other helpers flee,
There is One will faithful be;
You can always count on Jesus,
He’s my Friend.

2 Do you need a friend to help you
When the burdens press,
One who will not leave or fail you
In your sore distress?
There is One, He’s ever near you,
Who His aid will lend;
You can always count on Jesus,
He’s my Friend. [Refrain]

3 Do you need a friend to guide you
Lest your feet should roam,
From the straight and narrow pathway
That will lead you home?
There is One alone can lead you
To the journey’s end;
You can always count on Jesus,
He’s my Friend. [Refrain]
