1 What a friend I have in Jesus,
He is ev’rything to me;
From His throne of Heav’nly Glory,
He came down to Calvary.

Refrain:
What a friend! What a friend!
What a faithful friend, and true;
What a friend! What a friend!
Him, I recommend to you.

2 What a friend I have in Jesus!
In temptation’s darkest hour
He is ever standing near me,
He upholds me with His pow’r. [Refrain]

3 What a friend I have in Jesus!
Yes, He’s ever near to me,
When the earthly ties are broken,
And when earthly comforts flee. [Refrain]

4 What a friend I have in Jesus,
When before the Throne I bend;
He is there and intercedeth:—
Was there ever such a friend. [Refrain]

5 What a friend I have in Jesus!
When I tread the vale of tears;
When death’s scenes around me gather,
He will drive away my fears. [Refrain]
