A friend I have called Jesus, Whose love is strong and true,
And never fails howeer tis tried, no matter what I do;
Ive sinned against this love of His, but when I knelt to pray,
Confessing all my guilt to Him, the sin clouds rolled away.
Its just like Jesus to roll the clouds away,
its just like Jesus to keep me day by day,
its just like Jesus all along the way,
Its just like His great love.
Sometimes the clouds of trouble bedim the sky above,
I cannot see my Saviors face, I doubt His wondrous love;
But He, from heavens mercy seat, beholding my despair,
In pity bursts the clouds between, and shows me He is there.
When sorrows clouds oertake me, and break upon my head,
When life seems worse than useless, and I were better dead;
I take my grief to Jesus then, nor do I go in vain,
For heavenly hope He gives that cheers like sunshine after rain.
O, I could sing forever of Jesus love divine,
Of all His care and tenderness for this poor life of mine;
His love is in and over all, and wind and waves obey,
When Jesus whispers Peace, be still! and rolls the clouds away.
