I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from My Father I have made known to you. John 15:15
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!
O what blessèd, sweet communion!
Jesus is a friend of mine.
A friend when other friendships cease,
A friend when others fail,
A friend who gives me joy and peace,
A friend when foes assail!
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!
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!
