Why should I charge my soul with care?
The wealth of every mine
Belongs to Christ, God’s Son and heir,
And He’s a friend of mine.

Refrain

Yes, He’s a friend of mine,
And He with me doth all things share;
Since all is Christ’s, and Christ is mine,
Why should I have a care?
For Jesus is a friend of mine.

The silver moon, the golden sun,
The countless stars that shine,
Are His alone, yes, every one,
And He’s a friend of mine.

Refrain

He daily spreads a glorious feast,
And at His table dine
The whole creation, man and beast,
And He’s a friend of mine.

Refrain

And when He comes in bright array,
And leads the conquering line,
It will be glory then to say,
That He’s a friend of mine.
