Christ, our Friend

Verse 1:
Christ, our Friend–His dear love brightens
Every path our feet may tread;
Gilds our darkest hours with sunshine,
Ev’ry grief with joy o’erspread.
Richest blessings without number,
Does our loving Father send;
How can we, for one brief moment,
Slight the love of such a Friend?
Slight the love of such a Friend?

Verse 2:
We will love Him–trust Him ever,
Till the dream of life shall end;
For His dear love faileth never,
Christ, our Brother–Christ, our Friend.
In the hours of pain and suffering,
We can lean on Jesus’ breast,
Hearing His sweet words of comfort,
“Come to me, I’ll give you rest,”
“Come to me, I’ll give you rest.”

Verse 3:
When we tread the darksome valley
There will be for us no gloom;
We’ll be safe in Jesus’ keeping–
His dear love will guide us home.
Home sweet home–all suffering ended,
Rest, sweet rest–which knows no end;
Rest with Him who sealed our pardon–
Christ, our Saviour–Brother–Friend!
Christ, our Saviour–Brother–Friend!

Mrs. N.W. Hine/Schubert, arr.
