1 The Savior of sinners from glory came down,
My hope of salvation to be;
Was scourged for my guilt, and was mocked with a crown—
He’s more than a friend to me.

Refrain:
He’s more than a friend, more than a friend,
He’s more than a friend to me;
This Savior of sinners, this King of all kings,
Is more than a friend to me.

2 When broken with sorrow, and trembling with fear,
To Him with my burden I flee;
No matter what troubles or trials appear—
He’s more than a friend to me. [Refrain]

3 In moments of weakness upon Him I lean,
His promise my hope and my plea;
So gently He leads, tho’ His hand is unseen—
He’s more than a friend to me. [Refrain]

4 Sometime in His beauty, thro’ wonderful grace,
This King of all kings I shall see;
And oh, ’twill be heaven to look on His face—
He’s more than a friend to me. [Refrain]
