Friendship With Jesus Lyrics

1 A friend of Jesus! O what bliss
That one, so vile as I,
Should ever have a friend like this
To lead me to the sky!

Friendship with Jesus, fellowship divine,
O what blessed, sweet communion,
Jesus is a friend of mine!

2 A friend when other friend ships cease,
A friend when others fail,
A friend who gives me joy and peace,
A friend who will prevail.

3 A friend when sickness lays me low,
A friend when death draws near,
A friend as through the vale I go,
A friend to help and cheer.

4 A friend when life’s short race is o’er,
A friend when earth is past,
A friend to meet on Heaven’s shore,
A friend when home at last.
