There’s not a Friend like the lowly Jesus

1
There’s not a Friend like the lowly Jesus:
  No, not one! no, not one!
None else could heal all our souls’ diseases:
  No, not one! no, not one!
  Jesus knows all about our struggles;
  He will guide ’til the day is done:
There’s not a Friend like the lowly Jesus:
    No, not one! no, not one!
2
No friend like Him is so high and holy,
  No, not one! no, not one!
And yet no friend is so meek and lowly,
  No, not one! no, not one!
3
There’s not an hour that He is not near us,
  No, not one! no, not one!
No night so dark, but His love can cheer us,
  No, not one! no, not one!
4
Did ever saint find this Friend forsake him?
  No, not one! no, not one!
Or sinner find that He would not take him?
  No, not one! no, not one!
5
Was e’er a gift like the Savior given?
  No, not one! no, not one!
Will He refuse us the bliss of heaven?
  No, not one! no, not one!

I sang this song with passion as I walked down from First Baptist Church Ndu. Though pentacostal today, I felt realy nostalgic having worshiped for the first time in the temple where my parents wedded in 1944. This nostalgia drove me down the memory lane. I owe much to Georges & Johnson, the ones the Lord inspired to write this song.

@jesse, the word ''lowly", as its used means humility.

There is indeed non like Thee.

What a Father that cares for His children even when we become very careless and turn against Him!

Really there is never a friend like Jesus and there will never be one. Thank You Jesus for being a true Friend to me and my household.

Really there is not a Friend like our beautiful Jesus, and there will never be even one, NO NO NO.

Any time I hear or sing this song, it brings to my consciousness that I am not journeying alone.

Whatever the world has taken from you Jesus will give you more. He will never leave you.

He is a friend that never condemn, He is always there when l need Him. He talks to me, He strengthens me when I am weak, I wonder what would have become of me without Jesus as a friend.
