I have found a friend divine

Representative Text

1 I have found a friend divine,
Wont you love him too?
I am his and he is mine,
Wont you love him too?

Wont you love my Jesus,
My precious, precious Jesus?
Wont you love my Jesus?
He is waiting now for you.

2 Oh, how dear his name to me,
Wont you love him too?
None can save your soul but he,
Wont you love him too? [Refrain]

3 Heavy-laden, care-oppressed,
Wont you love him too?
How he longs to give you rest,
Wont you love him too? [Refrain]

4 Cast your burden at his feet,
Wont you love him too?
There is pardon pure and sweet,
Wont you love him too? [Refrain]
