Full Text

1 What a brother we’ve found in the Saviour,
One who never forsakes in our need,
One who feels thro’ His cross ev’ry sorrow,
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need.

Refrain:
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need,
He who for the erring will plead,
He who like a shepherd will lead,
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need.

2 When we hunger and thirst in life’s desert,
How like manna His promises feed;
And He gives us the cup of salvation,
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need. [Refrain]

3 He is one with the Father in glory,
Yet He stoops to our lowliest need;
Never wound was too deep for His healing,
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need. [Refrain]
