What A Friend We Have In Jesus






A true friend will stand by you,
Anytime and anywhere;
The truest friend you'll find is Jesus;
He always will be there.

He's a friend that you can count on,
He's a friend that you can trust;
Jesus is the only friend
Who's always faithful and just.

He cares about your whole life,
Your heart, your soul, your mind;
Jesus is the greatest friend
You're ever going to find.

A friend who will stand by you
Is a real friend, indeed;
Jesus is the one true friend
You're always going to need.

He is a friend who'll help you,
Who will comfort, support, and guide;
Jesus will always walk with you
And remain close by your side.

He never will forsake you,
He'll be there right to the end;
Your Savior, Lord, Redeemer,
Your dearest, most loving friend.

What a great reminder of the power of prayer. How often we may try to rely on self instead of going immediately to our Lord in prayer.

This was my daddy's favorite hymn.

I haven't heard the Haven quartet in years. Used to listen to The Haven of Rest on the radio when I was growing up.

Thanks for the memories, and the great reminder of the wonderful friend we have in Jesus!
