I Have A Dear Friend Who Is Precious To


I have a dear Friend who is precious to me,
On whom in all need I may call,
And who, since his love is so pure and so true,
To me is the best Friend of all.

Refrain:
His love, it has never, no, never been told,
So wonderful, boundless, and free;
The one in ten thousand, the dearest of all
Is Jesus my Savior to me.

He comforts in sorrow, he calms in the storm,
He answers the heart’s faintest call;
And so, in his friendship and love unto me,
My Savior is dearest of all. [Refrain]

In times of affliction, in moments of grief,
Or when painful trials befall,
He then is my refuge for comfort and help,
For he is the dearest of all. [Refrain]

Among the dear friends whom I love and esteem,
Of all the kind friends I recall,
Not one can compare with this friend of all friends,
My Savior is dearest of all. [Refrain]
