1 I have a Friend so precious,
So very dear to me,
He loves me with such tender love,
He loves so faithfully;
I could not live apart from Him,
I love to feel Him nigh,
And so we dwell together, My Lord and I.
2 Sometimes I'm faint and weary,
He knows that I am weak,
And as He bids me lean on Him
His help I gladly seek;
He leads me in the paths of light,
Beneath a sunny sky,
And so we walk together, My Lord and I.
3 I tell Him all my sorrows,
I tell Him all my joys,
I tell Him all that pleases me,
I tell Him what annoys;
He tells me what I ought to do,
He tells me how to try,
And so we talk together, My Lord and I.
4 He knows how I am longing
Some weary soul to win,
And so He bids me go and speak the loving word for Him;
He bids me tell His wondrous love,
And why He came to die,
And so we work together, My Lord and I.
