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.

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.

I woke up with the song in my heart after singing thru, I found a deeper peace within my soul. But Can Jesus be apple tree of trees?

Praise the Lord, thank You Lord. I've found You. You're everything to me, and You are my fairest ten thousand to my soul. And all I need to cleanse me my fully whole and thank You Lord, in my sorrows You're my Comforter and You stayed in my troubles. Oh Lord Jesus, this song very enjoyable and I remembered this song when JESUS saved me and I baptised in 1972, CHURCH IN MAHAYAG, MINDANAO PHILLIPINES, at big river. Hallelujah amen. Amen amen.

Some of these words are not correct. Check the Pentecostal hymnal book; it is in there.

I agree, Joy, this hymn is uplifting. We've sang it in church a few times and each time there was clapping and exuberant singing.

I can always count on Hymnal.net for music to the most obscure of the hymns. This song has been requested by a dear faithful lady and I'm sure her's won't be the only soul rejoicing singing this old hymn! :)
