Our Great Savior (Jesus! What A Friend for Sinners)

Jesus! what a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Savior, makes me whole.
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.
Jesus! what a Strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in Him.
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my Strength, my victory wins.
Jesus! what a Help in sorrow!
While the billows o’er me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my Comfort, helps my soul.
Jesus! what a Guide and Keeper!
While the tempest still is high,
Storms about me, night o’ertakes me,
He, my Pilot, hears my cry.
Jesus! I do now receive Him,
More than all in Him I find.
He hath granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine.
Oh my sweet and precious Jesus, know my heart is solely Thine. Maker, Healer, Redeemer of mine, may I ever cling to Thy pierced hands and wounded side. May I seek Thee in the early hours and in the evening time. Mighty fortress, Tower of refuge, Shelter in the time of storms, may I run to Thee and hide myself, let it not be the exception but the norm.
“And he said, “Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.” From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, “Will ye also go away?” Then Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.”
