Hymn/Song Information

FRIEND




One there is above all others,
Well deserves the name of Friend;
His is love, beyond a brother's,
Costly, free, and knows no end.


Which of all our friends to save us,
Could or would have shed his blood?
But this Saviour died to have us
Reconciled in him to God.


When he lived on earth abasÚd,
Friend of sinners was his name;
Now, above all glory raised,
He rejoices in the same.


Oh, for grace our hearts to soften!
Teach us, Lord, at length to love;
We, alas! forget too often,
What a Friend we have above.


---Alternative verses---


Which of all our friends to save us,
Could or would have shed his blood?
But our Jesus died to have us
Reconciled in him to God.
