I’ve found a friend in Jesus, He’s everything to me

1
I’ve found a friend in Jesus, He’s everything to me,
  He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
The Apple-tree of trees, 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 Apple-tree of trees, the Bright and Morning Star,
  He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
2
He all my griefs has taken, and all my sorrows borne;
  In temptation He’s my strong and mighty tower;
I’ve all for Him forsaken, and 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 Apple-tree of trees, 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.
Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessed face,
  Where rivers of delight shall ever roll:
He’s the Apple-tree of trees, the Bright and Morning Star,
  He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

Song of Solomon 2:3 As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, / So is my beloved among the sons: In his shade I delighted and sat down, / And his fruit was sweet to my taste.

Apple tree of trees

Where do the line “apple tree of trees” come from??? It’s supposed to be “lily of the valley”.

I was very unhappy. I said to myself what a weak man i'm and lack wisdom. I went to bed very sad. I've never heard this hymn for a very long time; I never knew the lyrics. That night in my dreams this hymn came to me and I started singing word for word. I woke up in the middle of the night and I knew it was Jesus talking to me. I had to search for the lyrics and here i'm singing " I have found a friend in Jesus". I feel happy that Jesus still loves me and that there is still hope for me.

"He’ll never, never leave me,

nor yet forsake me "here"

I love the word "here"

Find strength as you meditate on God's words .

"He’ll never, never leave me,

nor yet forsake me "here"

Song of Solomon 5:16 His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.
