There’s not a Friend like the lowly Jesus

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!
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!
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!
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!
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 woke up with this hymn on my mind today and I perceived strongly that it is coming as an assurance from the Lord to me at this very moment. I have a friend who by his actions betrayed the trust I have in him, but taken solace in the fact that Christ is the only true Friend worth having for life.

I had sang this song many times as a scripture union member in my secondary school days but it ministered more to me 26yrs ago when my father passed and my constant singing of the hymn comforted me and reminded me of the love of Jesus for humanity.

Although I received Jesus at the age of 8, it took me until my late 60s to believe at the heart level, that Jesus is my friend. Sad to say, I am not the only Christian who takes such a long time to have this deep conviction.
