307. Jesus Is a Friend of Mine

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

Refrain:
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.

2 The golden sun, the silver moon,
And all the stars that shine,
Are His alone, yes, every one,
And He’s a Friend of mine. (Refrain)

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

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