1 There is one who understands our hearts,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
And for ev’ry need His grace imparts,
Jesus, the best friend of all.

Refrain:
Jesus, the best friend of all,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
He knows our ev’ry care,
And will ev’ry burden bear,
Jesus, the best friend of all.

2 He will soothe the comfort in distress,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
He will sympathize, and help and bless,
Jesus, the best friend of all. [Refrain]

3 In temptation He will help thee stand,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
Will support thee with His strong right hand,
Jesus, the best friend of all. [Refrain]

4 There is one who died for you and me,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
He will give us pardon full and free,
Jesus, the best friend of all. [Refrain]
