1 Jesus is a precious friend: oh, so kind and true!
Full of tenderness and sympathy;
In the time of woe and care he my grief will share,
For he is a loving friend to me.
O this precious, precious friend,
On whose goodness I depend,
How he loves me, yes, loves me
With love that knows no end!
For he died upon the tree,
And in dying ransomed me,
And will love me, yes, love me
Thro’ all eternity.
2 Jesus is my dearest friend, and he walks with me
As I journey in the narrow way;
He assures me I am his, and bestows his peace,
So I’m happy in his love each day. [Refrain]
3 Jesus is the sinner’s friend, and he died for me,
And redeemed me by his wondrous grace;
And will lead me by the hand to the better land,
Where I hope to see him face to face. [Refrain]
