Representative Text

1 There is a Friend, a patient Friend,
Who loved us long ago;
And laid aside his royal crown,
That wondrous love to show.

He’s just the same today,
Yes, the very same today,
As when he said “I am the true and living Way;”
O come and trust him now,
O trust him while you may,
He’s just the same today, the same today.

2 Upon the cross his precious blood
For all he freely gave;
He rose triumphant from the tomb,
And lives the world to save. [Refrain]

3 The same who stood with lifted hands,
And blessed his faithful few;
Then in a cloud was taken up,
And parted from their view. [Refrain]

4 The same who yet shall come again,
And we shall see his face;
And when we meet him in the skies,
We’ll shout redeeming grace. [Refrain]
