Full Text

1 What a blessed friend is Jesus!
When I come to Him in need;
Choicest blessings doth He shower
When His promises I plead.

Refrain:
Blessed friend, dearest friend,
What a blessed friend is Jesus!
Blessed friend, dearest friend,
What a blessed friend is Jesus.

2 What a blessed friend is Jesus!
How He calms my guilty fears,
When my eyes to Him uplifted,
Show my sad, repentant tears. [Refrain]

3 What a blessed friend is Jesus!
How He fills my soul with joy;
O ye ransomed, sing His praises,
And your sweetest notes employ. [Refrain]

4 What a blessed friend is Jesus!
Saints and seraphs join your strains;
Harps and voices all uniting,
Praise the Lamb that ever reigns. [Refrain]
