Welch

8, 4

1.

There's a friend above all others,

O how he loves!

His is love beyond a brother's

O how he loves!

Earthly friends may fail and leave us,

This day kind, the next bereave us;

But this Friend will ne'er deceive us,

O how he loves!

2.

Blessed Jesus, wouldst thou know him?

O how he loves!

Give thyself e'en this day to him,

O how he loves!

Is it sin that pains and grieves thee?

Unbelief and trials tease thee?

Jesus can from all release thee,

O how he loves!

3.

Love this friend who longs to save thee,

O how he loves!

Dost thou love? He will not leave thee,

O how he loves!

Think no more then of tomorrow,

Take his easy yoke and follow,

Jesus carries all thy sorrow,

O how he loves!

4.

All thy sins shall be forgiven,

O how he loves!

Backward all thy foes be driven,

O how he loves!

Best of blessing he'll provide thee,

Naught but good shall e'er betide thee,

Safe to glory he will guide thee,

O how he loves!

5.

Pause, my soul! adore and wonder,

O how he loves!

Naught can cleave this love asunder,

O how he loves!

Neither trial, nor temptation,

Doubt, nor fear, nor tribulation,

Can bereave us of salvation;

O how he loves!

6.

Let us still this love be viewing:

O how he loves!

And, though faint, keep on pursuing

O how he loves!

He will strengthen each endeavor,

And when passed o'er Jordan's river

This shall be our song for ever:

O how he loves!
