THERE IS A FRIEND
When the sadness is heavy upon you
And the darkness descends to blind
When help is far and hope is fading
There is a friend who will cheer you up
He is the light that darkness dreads
His arm is strong, His word upholds
He was badly beaten for your peace
He bore much pain to earn you health
His blood was shed to cleanse your sins
He gave His body to give you life
What more will He not do for you?
Why tread alone when He is near?
