I Have A Friend Who Is Always The Same


I have a Friend who is always the same,
He never changes through sunshine or rain;
One who can share all my sorrow and pain,
Oh, have you a Friend like that?

Refrain:
Have you a Friend like the Savior so dear?
Have you a Friend who is always near?
A Friend who in sorrows can comfort and cheer,
Oh! have you a Friend like that?

This Friend knows all of my trials and grief,
He knows just how to send blessed relief;
All of His promises I can believe,
Oh, have you a Friend like that? [Refrain]

When other friendships of earthly life fail,
When fiery darts shall my spirit assail;
He gives me strength over all to prevail,
Oh, have you a Friend like that? [Refrain]

When I shall enter the valley of death,
Loved ones are waiting for my latest breath;
“Fear not for I will be with you” He saith,
Oh, have you a Friend like that? [Refrain]
