HYMN 784 D
Tune: ’Tori mi ati ’hinrere

1.  I’ve found a Friend, oh such a friend 

     He loved me ere I knew Him

     He drew me, with the cords of love 

     And thus He bound me to Him

     And round my heart still closer twine 

     Those ties which naught can sever

     For I am His, and He is mine

     For ever and ever for aye.

2.  I've found a friend, oh, such a friend 

     He bled, He died to save me

     And not alone the gift of life

     But His own self me He gave

     Naught that I have my own I call

     I hold it for the Giver

     My heart, my strength, my life, my all

     Are His, and His for ever.

3.  l've found a friend, oh, such a friend 

     All pow'r to Him is given

     To guard me on my onward course 

     And bring me safe to heaven 

     Th'eternal glories gleam afar

     To nerve my faint endeavour 

     So now to watch, to work, to war 

     And then to rest for ever.

4.  I‘ve found a friend, oh, such a friend 

     So kind, and true and tender

     So wise a Counsellor and Guide

     So mighty a Defender

     From Him who loves me now so well 

     What pow'r my soul can sever? 

     Shall life or death, or earth or hell 

     No, I am His for ever.  Amen
