They tried my Lord and Master,
With no one to defend;
Within the halls of Pilate
He stood without a friend.


I’ll be a friend to Jesus,
My life for Him I’ll spend;
I’ll be a friend to Jesus,
Until my years shall end.

The world may turn against Him,
I’ll love Him to the end;
And while on earth I’m living,
My Lord shall have a friend.


I’ll do what He may bid me,
I’ll go where He may send;
I’ll try each flying moment,
To prove that I’m His friend.


To all who need a Savior,
My friend I recommend;
Because He brought salvation,
Is why I am His friend.
