1 I have found a Friend to guide me,
So may you—so may you.
I’ve a Comforter beside me,
Burdened soul, and so may you.

Refrain:
Jesus is my precious Saviour,
He’s my Friend, and He is true,
I have found a great Companion,
So may you, and you, and you.

2 I have had my fetters broken,
So may you—so may you.
I have heard forgiveness spoken,
Burdened soul, and so may you. [Refrain]

3 To this mighty Friend I’m clinging,
So may you—so may you.
All the while my heart is singing,
Burdened soul, and so may you. [Refrain]

4 I to Him my heart have given,
So may you—so may you.
I shall follow Him to heaven,
Burdened soul, and so may you. [Refrain]
