I’ve found a Friend, oh, such a Friend

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.

I found Him! I found a friend! He loved me before I knew Him! The gift He have is not just His Life, but His very own person!

The day I discovered this song, it sank into my heart. Then as I looked at the lyrics, the message went deep into my heart. I repeatedly played it while singing along. It soothes my heart to know I have a friend who is always there for me. I just went to this hymn today again as I felt depressed for some situations going on in my life and family. But it reensured me of a Friend who is always there. He will let me through.

Please keep pray for me!

i had sinned against God by consulting sorcery... He demonstrated His love to me by directing to repentance through withheld opportunities, while at the same time telling me that He has a great purpose for my life to serve Him... when I came before Him and the Saviour and asked for forgiveness and redemption and redeployment, He in the Father and the Son came through for me 100% ... and this is "my song", even in my mother tongue Ruhororo (Runyakitara)...

Awesome hymn. It ministers peace to my soul always.

Yes we have a Friend. A selfless one who gave His Life for us and by His Grace nothing and I mean nothing will take us from His side. Hallelujah!

This beautiful hymn is repeatedly and endlessly singing in my heart. Thinking about the finished work of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for salvation of the whole humanity makes it the best hymn ever. I thank God for such a loving and carring friend.

This is the best of the best hymns I have ever come across, it speaks as if I had written it. All praise to my redeemer Christ Jesus. My heart is inviting a good matter.
