Jesus, what a friend for sinners
Jesus, what a friend for sinners, Jesus, lover of my soul,
friends may fail me, fears assail me, He, my savior, makes me whole.
Hallelujah, what a Savior, hallelujah, what a friend,
saving, helping, keeping, loving, He is with me to the end.
Jesus, what a strength in weakness, let me hide myself in Him,
tempted, tried, and sometimes failing, He my strength, my victory wins.
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 has granted me forgiveness, I am His and He is mine.
