FOR THE NEW YEAR

FOR THE NEW YEAR

My Lord is come with me to stay,
He’s put my every sin away,
He’ll guide my footsteps day by day
I know no friend like Jesus.

He’s ever near, He’s at my side,
To see me through He will abide;
My Lord for me He lived and died
I know no friend like Jesus.

Lord help me to be calm and still,
Content to do Thy blessed will;
Our vessel to the brim He’ll fill
I know no friend like Jesus.

If I am sad, He hears my sigh;
The faintest murmur brings Him nigh;
He watches with a mother’s eye
I know no friend like Jesus.

If trials come across my way,
He’ll some sweet word of comfort say;
He’ll dry my falling tear away
I know no friend like Jesus.

And when life’s battle here is o’er,
Away up higher I shall soar;
‘Twill be my theme for evermore
I know no friend like Jesus.
