Words and music: James G Small and George C Stebbins From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk I’ve Found a Friend A E7 I’ve found a Friend, O such a friend! A He loved me ere I knew Him; D He drew me with the cords of love, A E7 A And thus He bound me to Him; E7 A And round my heart still closely twine B E7 Those ties which naught can sever, A D A E7 A For I am His, and He is mine, forever and forever. I’ve found a Friend, O such a friend! He bled, He died to save me; And not alone the gift of life, But His own Self He gave me! Naught that I have mine own I call, I’ll hold it for the Giver, My heart, my strength, my life, My all are His, and His forever. I’ve found a Friend, O such a friend! All pow’r to Him is given, To guard me on my onward course, And bring me safe to heaven. The eternal glories gleam afar, To nerve my faint endeavor; So now to watch, to work, to war, And then to rest forever. I’ve found a Friend, O such a friend! So kind and true and tender, So wise a Counselor and Guide, So mighty a Defender! From Him who loves me now so well What power my soul can sever? Shall life or death, shall earth or hell? No! I am His forever.Home
