1. I’ve found a Friend, oh, such a Friend!
      He loved me ere I knew Him;
    He drew me with the cords of love,
      And thus He bound me to Him.
    And round my heart still closely twine
      Those ties which naught can sever,
    For I am His, and He is mine,
      Forever and forever.
  2. I’ve found a Friend, oh, such a Friend!
      He bled, He died to save me;
    And not alone the gift of life,
      But His own self He gave me.
    Naught that I have my own I call,
      I hold it for the Giver;
    My heart, my strength, my life, my all,
      Are His, and His forever.
  3. I’ve found a Friend, oh, such a Friend!
      So kind, and true, and tender,
    So wise a Counsellor and Guide,
      So mighty a Defender!
    From Him who loves me now so well,
      What power my soul can sever?
    Shall life or death, or earth or hell?
      No? I am His forever.
