I Have A Friend You Ought To Know Him


I have a friend-you ought to know Him,
He is a Savior tender and true;
Jesus, my king-how I adore Him!
And He should be as precious to you.

Refrain
I have a friend-you ought to know Him,
Will you receive His greeting today?
Waiting He stands, tenderly pleading:
I am the Life, the Truth, and the Way.

I have a friend-you ought to know Him,
He is a faithful shepherd and guide;
Sorrow He shares, burdens He lightens,
Ev’ry good thing by Him is supplied. [Refrain]

I have a friend-you ought to know Him,
Will you not let Him enter your heart?
Peace He will give you without measure,
Blessing untold, that will not depart. [Refrain]
