Representative Text

1 I’ve a Friend who’s ever with me,
Shares my joys and sorrows too;
It is Jesus, my Redeemer,
Praise His name, He’s ever true.

And I love Him, yes, I love Him,
He has done so much for me;
I will praise Him, ever praise Him,
This my song shall ever be.

2 Were it not for His dear presence,
Leading, guiding me each day,
Life would not be worth the living,
Earth would be a darksome way. [Refrain]

3 He has promised me a mansion,
When my earthly work is done;
Over there I’ll join the victors,
Praising Him in endless song. [Refrain]
