1 There is no friend like Jesus my King,
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour;
His wondrous love forever I’ll sing,
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour.

Refrain:
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour,
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour;
For all His love, His wonderful love,
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour.

2 That dearest friend now bids you come home,
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour;
And never from His presence to roam,
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour [Refrain]

3 Then come to Christ and make Him your choice,
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour;
The angels will forever rejoice,
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour. [Refrain]

4 Within those heav’nly portals I see,—
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour;
For beck’ning hands are waving for me,
I’ll never cease praising my Saviour. [Refrain]
