Friend of sinners Lord of glory Lowly




Friend of sinners, Lord of glory,
Lowly, mighty, Brother, King!
Musing o’er Thy wondrous story,
Grateful we Thy praises sing:
Friend to help us,
cheer us, save us,
In Whom pow’r and pity blend—
Praise we must the grace
which gave us
Jesus Christ, the sinners’ Friend.


Friend Who never fails
nor grieves us,
Faithful, tender, constant, kind;
Friend Who at all times
receives us,
Friend Who came the lost to find.
Sorrow soothing, joys enhancing,
Loving until life shall end;
Then conferring bliss entrancing,
Still, in heaven,
the sinners’ Friend.


O to love and serve Thee better!
From all evil set us free;
Break, Lord, every sinful fetter;
Be each thought
conformed to Thee:
Looking for Thy bright appearing,
May our spirits upward tend;
Till no longer doubting, fearing,
We behold the sinners’ Friend.
