I Have A Friend In Heaven


I have a Friend in heaven,
A faithful, loving Friend,
Whose holy presence ever,
My footsteps doth attend.
Though earthly friends forsake me,
I will not be alone,
For He is ever with me,
And I am all His own.

Chorus:
Though earthly friends forsake me,
I will not be alone,
For He is ever with me,
And I am all His own.

I have a Friend in heaven,
Who shareth all my grief,
To Him I take my burdens,
He grants my soul relief.
His care is ever o’er me,
He guides me day by day,
Makes straight the path before me,
Sheds light upon my way. [Chorus]

I have a Friend in heaven,
A strong and mighty Friend,
Whose tender love will ever
Go with me to the end.
Though earthly ties be broken,
I cannot be alone,
For Jesus walks beside me,
And I am all His own. [Chorus]
