I have a friend, a precious friend,
O how He loves me;
He says His love will never end,
O how He loves me.

Refrain

O how He loves me,
O how He loves me;
I know not why, I only cry,
O how He loves me.

Why He should come, I cannot tell,
O how He loves me;
In my poor broken heart to dwell,
O how He loves me.

Refrain

He died to save my soul from death,
O how He loves me;
I’ll praise Him while He gives me breath,
O how He loves me.

Refrain

He walks with me along life’s road,
O how He loves me;
He carries every heavy load,
O how He loves me.

Refrain

He has a home prepared for me,
O how He loves me;
With Him I’ll spend eternity,
O how He loves me.

Refrain
