Albert S. Reitz, 1918 (🔊 pdf nwc).

There never was a truer friend than Jesus,
He hears me when my heart for mercy pleads;
And no one knows my burdens like my Jesus,
For He alone can understand my needs.

Refrain

Wonderful, unfailing friend is Jesus,
He fills my soul with singing all the day;
Wonderful, eternal friend is Jesus,
And He’ll go with me all the way.

There never was a truer friend than Jesus,
My sorrows He will always with me share;
And since He bore His cross, my blessèd Jesus,
There is no cross He will not help me bear.

Refrain

There never was a truer friend than Jesus,
He is my life and strength, my all in all;
Upon the strong and loving arms of Jesus
My soul shall rest, and never, never fail.

Refrain
