Jesus! what a Friend for sinners! Jesus! lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me, he, my savior, makes me whole.
Jesus! what a strength in weakness! let me hide myself in him;
tempted, tried, and sometimes failing, he, my strength, my vict’ry wins.
hallelujah! what a savior! hallelujah, what a Friend!
saving, helping, keeping, loving, he is with me to the end.
oh Jesus! what a Friend!
Jesus! what a help in sorrow! While the billows o’er me roll,
even when my heart is breaking, he, my comfort, helps my soul.
Jesus! what a guide and keeper! While the tempest still is high,
storms about me, night o’ertakes me, he, my pilot, hears my cry.
Jesus! i do now receive him, more than all in him i find,
he hath granted me forgiveness, i am his, and he is mine.
