Hymn/Song Information

THIS IS MY FRIEND




Majestic sweetness sits enthroned
Upon the Saviour’s brow;
His head with radiant glories crowned,
|:His lips with grace o’erflow. :|


To Christ, the Lord, let every tongue
Its noblest tribute bring
When He’s the subject of the song,
|:Who can refuse to sing? :|


Survey the beauties of His face,
And on His glories dwell;
Think of the wonders of His grace,
|:And all His triumphs tell. :|


No mortal can with Him compare
Among the sons of men;
Fairer is He than all the fair
|:Who fill the heavenly train. :|


He saw me plunged in deep distress
And flew to my relief;
For me He bore the shameful cross
|:And carried all my grief. :|


His hand a thousand blessings pours
Upon my guilty head:
His presence gilds my darkest hours,
|:And guards my sleeping bed. :|


To Him I owe my life and breath
And all the joys I have;
He makes me triumph over death
|:And saves me from the grave. :|


To heaven, the place of His abode,
He brings my weary feet;
Shows me the glories of my God,
|:And makes my joys complete. :|


Since from His bounty I receive
Such proofs of love divine,
Had I a thousand hearts to give,
|:Lord, they should all be Thine. :|


---Alternative verses---


To God, the Father, my abode,
He brings my weary feet;
Shows me the glories of my God,
|: And makes my joys complete. :|
