I Always Have At Hand A Friend


I always have at hand a friend,
Jesus is hov’ring near,
He’ll care for me and e’er defend,
Jesus is hov’ring near.

Refrain:
Jesus is hov’ring near,
Ready to calm, soothe my alarm,
Jesus will always hear,
Jesus will bless and cheer.

I’m ne’er alone, I’m e’er content,
Jesus is hov’ring near,
A heav’nly peace His love has sent,
Jesus is hov’ring near. [Refrain]

Though clouds o’erhang I know no qualm,
Jesus is hov’ring near,
My days are filled with blessed calm,
Jesus is hov’ring near. [Refrain]

There’s naught that can my peace destroy,
Jesus is hov’ring near,
His presence brings me rarest joy,
Jesus is hov’ring near. [Refrain]
