O Who Has Not Felt That The Cares Of The

Oh, who has not felt that the cares of earth
Were more than man’s strength could bear,
And longed for a friend who could understand,
And all of life’s burdens share?

Just such a Friend is Jesus,
Just such a Friend is Jesus:
His grace doth forever to sinners abound;
Just such a Friend is Jesus.

Oh, who has not felt the dark stain of sin
Like crimson upon his soul,
And sought for a friend who had pow’r to free
From passions which held control? [Chorus]

When those that we love have been snatched away,
And walk no more by our side,
Oh, where is the One who will dearer be
Than all of earth’s friends beside? [Chorus]

Thou Friend of the friendless, so kind and true,
Thou Savior of sinners lost,
Protect us and guide us life’s journey thro’
Till safely death’s stream we’ve crossed.
