Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	Jesus! what a friend for sinners! 
	Jesus! lover of my soul; 
	Friends may fail me, foes assail me, 
	He, my Savior, makes me whole. 

2.	Jesus! what a strength in weakness! 
	Let me hide myself in Him; 
	Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing, 
	He, my strength, my vict'ry wins. 

3.	Jesus! what a help in sorrow! 
	While the billows o'er me roll, 
	Even when my heart is breaking, 
	He, my comfort, helps my soul. 

4.	Jesus! what a guide and keeper! 
	While the tempest still is high, 
	Storms about me, night o'ertakes me, 
	He, my pilot, hears my cry. 

5.	Jesus! I do now receive Him, 
	More than all in Him I find, 
	He hath granted me forgiveness, 
	I am His and He is mine. 

	Hallelujah! what a Savior! 
	Hallelujah! what a friend! 
	Saving, helping, keeping, loving, 
	He is with me to the end.
