I Have Found A Friend In Jesus

Sharing the words to one of my favorite hymns:

I
have found a friend in Jesus, 

He’s everything to me,
 

He’s the
fairest of ten thousand to my soul;


The Lily of the Valley, 

In Him
alone I see

 
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.


In
sorrow He’s my comfort, 

In trouble He’s my stay;


He tells me
every care on Him to roll.

Refrain

He’s
the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
 He’s the
fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

He
all my grief has taken,

And all my sorrows borne;


In temptation
He’s my strong and mighty tower;


I have all for Him forsaken, 

And
all my idols torn


From my heart and now 

He keeps me by His
power.


Though all the world forsake me, 

And Satan tempt me
sore,


Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.

Refrain

He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, 
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

He
will never, never leave me, 

Nor yet forsake me here,


While I live
by faith and do His blessèd will;


A wall of fire about me,

 I’ve
nothing now to fear,


From His manna He my hungry soul shall
fill.


Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessèd face,


Where
the rivers of delight shall ever roll.

Refrain

He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
 He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

hymn written by William Charles Fry (1837–1882) in London
