Full Text

1 I have found a Friend so kind and true,
I would tell His wond’rous love to you,
I am in His keeping all day thro’,
I would sing the praise of Jesus.

Sing with me, bless His holy name,
All the way He is just the same,
To Him honor bringing,
Let His praise be ringing,
Sing with me of Jesus, bless His name.

2 When I stood in need He heard my call,
Now He holds me safe tho’ shadows fall;
I would honor Him my all in all,
I would sing the praise of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 I am toiling on at His command,
When He speaks to me I understand,
Peace I find beneath His shelt’ring hand,
I would sing the praise of Jesus. [Refrain]
