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.

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

  2. Jesus! what a Strength in weakness!
    Let me hide myself in Him.
    Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
    He, my Strength, my victory wins.

  3. Jesus! what a Help in sorrow!
    While the billows over me roll,
    Even when my heart is breaking,
    He, my Comfort, helps my soul.

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