Jesus, What A Friend For Sinners – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Jesus, What A Friend For Sinners is one of J. Wilbur Chapman’s compositions.
He was quite prolific, but the fact that this set of words is associated with the tune HYFRYDOL makes it very singable.

The lyrics:
1.
Jesus! What a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Saviour, makes me whole.
Chorus.
Hallelujah! What a Saviour!
Hallelujah! What a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.
2.
Jesus! What a Strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in Him.
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my Strength, my victory wins.
Chorus.
3.
Jesus! What a help in sorrow!
While the billows over me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my Comfort, helps my soul.
Chorus.
4.
Jesus! I do now adore Him,
More than all in Him I find.
He hath granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine.
Chorus.
