I Have A Friend Who Cared Enough For Me

I have a Friend who cared enough for me
To seek and save my poor lost soul;
He found me wand’ring in the desert lone,
And won me back to His control.

I’ll ever sing of Jesus’ love for me,
And how He died upon Mount Calvary;
I’ll sing it now and thro’ eternity,
For that’s the sweetest song I know.

He met me with a look of pitying love,
His wounded side all rent and torn;
His pierced hands and feet, His broken heart,
The marks His thorny crown has worn. [Refrain]

I could not lift myself to His embrace,
He stooped and carried me along;
With words of healing comfort spoke to me,
And changed my mourning into song. [Refrain]

I found forgiveness in my Father’s house,
That peace my soul had never known;
‘Twas all because that God so loved the world,
And Jesus came to save His own. [Refrain]
