What a friend we have in Jesus
Our redeemer and our Lord
He freely gave His Life , that we might live .
He took upon himself , all of our sickness and our sin
Just as if they never happened, He'll forgive.

There's a lesson to be learned ,
From those who died on either side
Justly punished for the deeds that they had done
One said Lord will you remember me ,
When you come into your throne
Christ said because you have believed you are my son.

Chorus

They cried Christ the king of Israel
Come down from off that cross
That we might see , and truly then believe
With a loud cry jesus breathed His last
The curtain tore in two
Praise the lord my savior died for me and you.

For we who have received Him,
To us he gave the power
To become the sons of God, his Grace recieved,
Our reward will be in Heaven,
To sit beside him at the Throne,
A just reward , Because we have believed.

What a friend we have in Jesus
Our redeemer and our Lord
He freely gave His Life , that we might live .
He took upon himself , all of our sickness and our sin
Just as if they never happened, He forgives.

Chorus
