Hymn/Song Information

I have a Friend so patient kind forbear

I have a Friend, so patient,
kind, forbearing,
Of all my friends this Friend
doth love me best;
Though I am weak and sinful,
yet when sharing
His love and mercy I am ever blest.

He is my Lord, my Friend,
yea, He’s my Brother;
And Jesus Christ is
His most blessèd Name.
He loves more tenderly
than any mother;
To rest in Him is more
than wealth and fame.

My poor and wretched soul
He bought so dearly,
And freed from condemnation,
death, and hell;
The old and bitter foe
He crushed completely;
My soul, rejoice and sing,
for all is well!

Thus I’m redeemed;
no more the law prevaileth,
For Christ, the Lord, is
my Redeemer’s Name;
His precious blood more
than my sins availeth;
And cleanseth me from a
ll my guilt and shame.

With hallelujahs here
I’d tell the story,
My Lord to praise,
to laud and magnify;
And praise His Name
forevermore in glory,
Before His throne with
all the saints on high.
