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
