1 I have found a friend indeed,
Who supplies my ev’ry need,
My Savior, precious Savior;
With the eye of faith sublime,
I can see Him all the time,
And He’s with me all the way.

Hallelujah! I am walking with my Savior,
My Savior, precious Savior,
And He keeps me in His perfect love and favor,
And I never have to walk alone.

2 He has washed me from all sin,
He has made me pure within,
My Savior, precious Savior;
He hath made my spirit whole,
Spoken peace to my poor soul,
And He blesses me each day. [Refrain]

3 When I have a heavy trial,
He bestows on me a smile,
My Savior, precious Savior;
And I find no other rest,
Like the haven of His breast,
For a present help is He. [Refrain]

4 He’s prepared a home for me,
Over by the crystal sea,
My Savior, precious Savior;
When life’s fitful dream is o’er,
I will dwell upon that shore,
Thro’ a bright eternity. [Refrain]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856.

Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J.
