Acquaint thyself with Jesus,
The sinner’s truest friend;
A privilege most blessèd
To all He doth extend.
His love for men surpasses
The warmest earthly love;
Acquaint thyself with Jesus,
And His true friendship prove.

Acquaint thyself with Jesus,
No one like Him could lead;
No other friend can help you
In every time of need.
No other feels so deeply
For all thy care and grief;
Acquaint thyself with Jesus,
And He will give relief.

Acquaint thyself with Jesus,
And like Him thou shalt be;
Transformed into His image,
For all eternity.
Accept His offered mercy,
Come now, His promise claim;
Acquaint thyself with Jesus,
And spread abroad His fame.
