Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	I've found a friend, O such a friend! 
	Christ loved me ere I knew Him; 
	He drew me with the cords of love, 
	And thus He bound me to Him; 
	And round my heart still closely twine 
	Those ties which naught can sever, 
	For I am His, and Christ is mine, 
	Forever and forever. 

2.	I've found a friend, O such a friend! 
	He bled, He died to save me; 
	And not alone the gift of life, 
	But His own self He gave me; 
	Naught that I have my own I call, 
	I hold it for the Giver; 
	My heart, my stength, my life, my all 
	Are His, and His forever. 

3.	I've found a friend, O such a friend!
	All pow'r to Him is given, 
	To guard me on my onward course, 
	And bring me safe to heaven: 
	Th' eternal glories gleam afar 
	To nerve my faint endeavor; 
	So now to watch, to work to war, 
	And then to rest forever.  

4.	I've found a friend, O such a friend!
	So kind and true and tender, 
	So wise a counselor and guide, 
	So mighty a defender! 
	From Him who loves me now so well 
	What pow'r my soul can sever? 
	Shall life or death or earth or hell? 
	No; I am His forever.
