I have a Friend so precious, So very dear to me, He loves me with a tender love, He loves me faithfully; I could not live apart from Him, I love to feel Him nigh; And so we dwell together, My Lord and I.
Sometimes I’m faint and weary, He knows that I am weak; And as He bids me lean on Him, His help I’ll gladly seek; He leads me in the path of light, Beneath a sunny sky; And so we walk together, My Lord and I.
He knows how much I love Him, He knows I love Him well; But with what love He loveth me, My tongue can never tell; It is an everlasting love In ever rich supply; And so we love each other, My Lord and I.
I tell Him all my sorrows, I tell Him all my joys, I tell Him all that pleases me, I tell Him what annoys; He tells me what I ought to do, Hs tells me what to try; And so we talk together, My Lord and I.
He knows how I am longing Some weary soul to win, And so He bids me go and speak A loving word for Him; He bids me tell His wondrous love, And why He came to die; And so we work together, My Lord and I.
