I Have A Precious Friend

I have a precious friend, supernal,
Whose praises now my lips employ;
Whose loving kindness is eternal,
And He’s my glory and my joy.

He is my glory, my endless glory,
My comfort and my joy is He;
And thro’ the ages I’ll tell the story
Of what His love has done for me.

He keeps me on the path to heaven,
And gives me blessings o’er and o’er;
And so the love that I have give
Will be increasing more and more. [Refrain]

Oh, I shall praise Him more forever,
And magnify His mighty love;
And cease to labor for Him never,
Till I behold His face above. [Refrain]
