Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more.

But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

Full Text

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]
