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.

I woke up from sleep singing this hymn, when I woke up, I lost the wordings, I began to search for it in my hymn books but I couldn't find it, hence, I googled it and found it on this site. In fact, I was heavily burdened but felt relieved after I sang the Hymn. The Lord Jesus is truely a friend in times of need. Hallelujah.

I think I agree with you. I have always known it to be "He's the lily of the valley."

"He’s the Apple-tree of trees, the Bright and Morning Star"

I thought it should be,

"He's the lily of the valley, the Bright and Morning Star".

Can someone give more details. My church ministers gave me a scare when I used this lyrics instead of the "lily".
