1 There is a Friend who’s closer than a brother,
O’er all the world have spread His love and fame.
Like Him to love and save there is no other,
And Jesus Christ my Saviour is His name.
I know that He will love me to the end,
I know that He my soul will sure defend.
When storms of life o’ertake me,
And friends on earth forsake me,
I know that He will love me to the end.
2 My ever changing path His mercy brightens,
His goodness tempers every pain and woe.
How tenderly the crushing cross Hi lightens,
When I to Him in earnest pray’r will go. [Refrain]
3 There’s not a moment that He is not near me,
His Spirit dwells within my raptured heart;
No earthly voice can speak as He to cheer me,
And not such perfect peace could e’er impart. [Refrain]
