Why Should I Charge My Soul With Care


Why should I charge my soul with care?
The wealth of ev’ry mine
Belongs to Christ, God’s Son and Heir,
And He’s a Friend of mine.

Chorus:
Yes, He’s a Friend of mine,
And He with me doth all things share;
Since all is Christ’s, and Christ is mine,
Why should I have a care?
For Jesus is a Friend of mine.

The silver moon, the golden sun,
The countless stars that shine,
Are His alone, yes, ev’ry one,
And He’s a Friend of mine. (Chorus)

He daily spreads a glorious feast,
And at His table dine
The whole creation, man and beast,
And He’s a Friend of mine. (Chorus)

And when He comes in bright array,
And leads the conquering line,
It will be glory then to say,
And He’s a Friend of mine. (Chorus)
