Representative Text

1 I have never found a friend like Jesus,
So tender and so mild,
And my heart rejoices in my Saviour,
Who owns me as His child;
I have always found Him kind and patient
In hours of sore distress;
I have never found a friend like Jesus,
To comfort and to bless.

Refrain:
I have never found a friend like Jesus,
Never such a friend as Jesus,
I have never found a friend like Jesus,
To comfort and to bless.

2 I have never found a friend like Jesus,
No matter where I go;
He’s the loving One who died for sinners,
The One you ought to know;
He will give you grace and strength to serve Him,
If you His name confess;
I have never found a friend like Jesus,
To comfort and to bless. [Refrain]

3 I have never found a friend like Jesus,
So faithful and so true;
He is with me in my fields of labor,
And shows me what to do;
Day by day He gives me “living water,”
Free grace and happiness;
I have never found a friend like Jesus,
To comfort and to bless. [Refrain]
