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 Songs 2:3—As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, / So is my beloved among the sons

Footnote on apple tree—The lover appreciates Christ as the source of rich provision (apple tree) who supplies her in a timely way. She is satisfied with her delight in resting (sitting down) under Christ as an overshadowing canopy in the day (shade — Isa. 4:5-6; 2 Cor. 12:9) and with her tasting Him as the sweet, timely supply (sweet fruit).

Ever since I found a friend in Jesus, He (God) has been my best friend, He's my joy when am sad, my strength when am week, my hope when am hopeless, my sight in my dark hour, faithful when am unfaithful. He's everything, He's a friend that is closer than a brother to me.

Indeed Jesus is the Lily of the valley, the bright and morning star. What a consolation that someone cares about my troubles and sorrows. Jesus was a man of sorrows and carries my sorrows. Now I am free from troubles of life because Jesus has carried all my sorrows. Though Satan tempt me sore, I shall surely reach my goal through Jesus in Jesus Name. My goal is God Himself. Thanks for uploading this song and God bless you all. All blessings.

This hymn is and will always be a great blessing to my husband and I. I believe the LORD is happy to hear us praise HIS glory that rests on us and never fades away. I had the most wonderful opportunity to teach this hymn to the Children's prayer ministry in Kuwait. All glory, honour and praise to JESUS CHRIST.
