I have a friend and He came to seek me,
I was afar on the ocean wave,
Into the fold of His love He brought me,
Peace to my soul from that hour He gave.

Refrain

Glory, glory, Jesus is my Savior,
I will sing and praise him in the glad, new song;
Glory, glory, I will give Him glory,
When mine eyes behold Him, in the blood-washed throng.

O how my heart with its joy is bounding,
O what a Savior and Friend is He,
Full of compassion and rich in blessing,
O how He loves and He cares for me.

Refrain

I have a friend that will ne’er forsake me,
I shall be kept by His mighty pow’r.
Safe in the arms of His love that folds me,
Moment by moment and hour by hour.

Refrain

I have a hope that is sure and steadfast,
Firm as the rock where by faith I stand;
I have the pledge of a rest eternal
Waiting for me in the soul’s bright land.

Refrain
