1 Have you ever thought there is one who knows,
There is no other friend like Jesus;
When the storm clouds rise and the wild wind blows,
There is no other friend like Jesus.

Refrain:
There’s no other friend like Jesus,
There’s no other friend like Jesus;
Tho’ life’s billows roll,
He will keep my soul,
Oh, there’s no other friend like Jesus.

2 Have you turned aside from the path of life?
There is no other friend like Jesus;
Have you kept your faith in the bitter strife?
There is no other friend like Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Do you struggle on in a lonely road?
There is no other friend like Jesus;
Is your heart made sad by a heavy load?
There is no other friend like Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Will you let Him enter your wayward soul?
There is no other friend like Jesus;
Will you trust the Christ who can make you whole?
There is no other friend like Jesus. [Refrain]

5 Would you meet the ones who have gone before?
There is no other friend like Jesus;
He can lead you safe to the other shore,
There is no other friend like Jesus. [Refrain]
