Representative Text

1 What will you find in Jesus?
A Refuge from alarm;
A help in time of trouble,
A shelter from the storm.

Chorus:
This you will find in Jesus,
A very Friend indeed;
A Comforter and Savior—
The very Friend you need.

2 What will you find in Jesus?
A Savior from all sin!
A rest from condemnation,
And peace and joy within. [Chorus]

3 What will you find in Jesus?
A Friend in time of need!
The truest, best, most faithful—
A very Friend indeed. [Chorus]

4 What will you find in Jesus?
The grace to help you on
Amid life’s great temptations,
‘Till heaven’s crown is won. [Chorus]
