1 There is a Friend whose love is free
Alike to rich and poor,
He watches over you and me,
His love is strong and sure;
No matter what may be our lot,
His mercy we may claim,
This faithful Friend will fail us not,
And Jesus is His name.

Oh, Jesus is His precious name,
This Friend whom ev’ry one may claim,
And we His love divine may plead,
For Jesus is a Friend indeed!

2 His grace is like the morning dew,
That sweetens earth and sky,
Refreshing ev’ry heart anew,
Abundant in supply;
His riches all the world may share,
He gives to each the same,
This blessed Friend is ev’rywhere,
And Jesus is His name. [Refrain]

3 Dear name of Jesus! sweetest sound
To ev’ry trusting soul,
Oh, may His love and grace abound,
And spread from pole to pole;
This Friend so faithful, precious Friend,
Whose glory we proclaim,
Will guard and guide us to the end,
And Jesus is His name. [Refrain]
