Representative Text

1 There is a Friend above all others dear,
Who is constant, faithful, and sincere;
Whose mercy is wider than the widest sea,
A Friend whose love from sin will free.

He’s my Savior, and my Redeemer,
For me He suffered want and shame;
He’s my Savior, and I adore Him,
All glory be unto His name.

2 There is a Friend whose everlasting arm,
Strong and mighty is to shield from harm;
A Friend who is present in the time of need,
A Friend who is a friend indeed. [Refrain]

3 There is a Friend who’s not ashamed of me,
Who’ll be faithful thro’ eternity;
Who’ll keep me in safety till the Jordan passed,
I reach my home in heav’n at last. [Refrain]
