Full Text

1 Thro’ storm and sunshine, light and shade,
There’s no friend like my Savior;
His mercies have my sins outweighed,
There’s no friend like my Savior.

Refrain:
No friend like Jesus, Precious friend,
What happy hours with Him I spend!
His love will never, never end:
There’s no friend like my Savior!

2 He sought for me when far astray,
There’s no friend like my Savior;
And brought me to His own right way,
There’s no friend like my Savior. [Refrain]

3 I’ve found it true, ‘mid pleasures bright,
There’s no friend like my Savior;
Much more in sorrow’s heavy night,
There’s no friend like my Savior. [Refrain]

4 So let me sing it to His praise,
There’s no friend like my Savior;
And yield to Him my ransomed days,
There’s no friend like my Savior. [Refrain]
