1 There’s a friend we love who is ever near,
And who guides us on our way;
When our hearts are sad He can make us glad,
And He turns all our nights to day.
O Jesus, our Jesus, Friend ever dear;
We can hear Thy voice and our hearts rejoice,
For we know that our Lord is near.
2 Thro’ the storms may come and the tempests beat,
And their strength we must endure;
We are not afraid, for our Lord has said,
“Fear ye not for thy rest is sure.” [Refrain]
3 When at last we stand by the Jordan’s wave,
And our time to leave has come;
We will say goodbye with a tear-dried eye
And our Saviour will take us home. [Refrain]Source: Songs of Sovereign Grace #49
