Full Text

1. I need just such a friend as Jesus
To lead me on the upward way;
A friend that will be near
When the darkest clouds appear,
Oh, I need just such a friend as Jesus.

Refrain
I need just such a friend,
One on whom I can depend,
I need just such a friend as Jesus,
A friend that will be true
As no other one will do,
Oh, I need just such a friend as Jesus.

2. I need just such a friend as Jesus!
He bore my sins upon the tree;
I’ll give to Him my heart!
Never say again—Depart!
For I need just such a friend as Jesus. [Refrain]

3. I need just such a friend as Jesus
When crossing Jordan’s swelling tide;
Tho’ seraph angels wait,
When I reach the pearly gate,
I will need just such a friend as Jesus. [Refrain]
