Lily of the Valley / I’ve found a friend in Jesus

1) I’ve found a friend in Jesus,— He’s everything to me ;
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul !
The “Lily of the Valley,” in Him alone I see—
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole ;

In sorrow He’s my comfort, in trouble He’s my stay ;
He tells me every care on Him to roll :
He’s the “Lily of the Valley,” the “Bright and Morning Star ” ;
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul !

2) He all my grief has taken, and all my sorrows borne ;
In temptation He’s my strong and mighty tower ;
I’ve all for Him forsaken, I’ve all my idols torn
From my heart — and now He keeps me by His power.

Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.
He’s the ” Lily of the Valley,” the ” Bright and Morning Star ” ;
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul !

3) He’ll never, never leave me nor yet forsake me here,
While I live by faith, and do His blessed will ;
A wall of fire about me, I’ve nothing now to fear:
With His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.

When crowned at last in glory, I’ll see His blessed face,
Where rivers of delight shall ever roll.
He’s the ” Lily of the Valley,” the ” Bright and Morning Star ” ;
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul !
