Author: Catherine Winkworth; Paul Gerhardt Hymnal: Book of Worship with Hymns and Tunes #504 (1899) Hymnal Title: Book of Worship with Hymns and Tunes Lyrics: 1 Since Jesus is my friend,
And I to Him belong,
It matters not what foes intend,
However fierce and strong.
2 He whispers in my breast
Sweet words of holy cheer,
How they who seek in God their rest
Shall ever find Him near;--
3 How God hath built above
A city fair and new,
Where eye and heart shall see and prove
What faith has counted true.
4 My heart for gladness springs;
It cannot more be sad;
For very joy it laughs and sings,--
Sees naught but sunshine glad.
5 The sun that lights mine eyes
Is Christ, the Lord I love;
I sing for joy of that which lies
Stored up for me above.
Amen. Topics: Christ Our Confidence; Christ Joy of believers in; Courage; Fear Dispelled; Trust In God Languages: English Tune Title: GREENWOOD
