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.
