1. I have a dear Savior who loves me, I know,
And whose will I delight to do;
He’s present to cheer me wherever I go—
Was there ever a friend so true?

Refrain
Was there ever a friend so true?
Was there ever a friend so true?
I often have proved Him,
I ever will love Him—
Was there ever a friend so true?

2. This wonderful friend is a helper indeed;
He has promised to lead me through,
And closer He comes than a brother in need—
Was there ever a friend so true? [Refrain]

3. He soothes me in sorrow with songs in the night,
And inspires me with hope anew;
He fills me with courage my battles to fight—
Was there ever a friend so true? [Refrain]

4. His love is a fountain of blessing so pure,
Ever flowing for me, for you;
His power is unfailing, His promise is sure—
Was there ever a friend so true? [Refrain]
