Full Text

1 Since the Lord has saved me from a life of sin,
Since his Spirit came to me and dwells within,
I have peace I never could have bought with gold—
To be a friend of Jesus is a joy untold.

Refrain:
There’s no other one so dear can be,
For he gave his life for me;
No danger do I fear, he is always near;
To be a friend of Jesus is a joy untold.

2 Are there words unspoken I should speak for him?
Is there kindness needed for the pathway dim?
Not an hour of service, Lord would I withhold—
To be a friend of Jesus is a joy untold. [Refrain]

3 Years are passing swiftly with their toil and pain,
And a life without him is a life in vain;
Ev’ry day new beauties unto me unfold—
To be a friend of Jesus is a joy untold. [Refrain]

4 Some day he will call me, when the toil is o’er,
To a life immortal on a fairer shore,
Then I’ll know in heaven, and his face behold—
To be a friend of Jesus is a joy untold. [Refrain]
