456 ~ My Lord and I
I have a Friend so precious, So very dear to me, He loves me with such tender love, He loves so faithfully; I could not live apart from Him, I love to feel Him nigh, And so we dwell together, My Lord and I.
Sometimes I'm faint and weary, He knows that I am weak, And as He bids me lean on Him, His help I gladly seek; He leads me in the paths of light, Beneath a sunny sky, And so we walk together, My Lord and I.
I tell Him all my sorrows, I tell Him all my joys, I tell Him all that pleases me, I tell Him what annoys; He tells me what I ought to do, He tells me how to try, And so we talk together, My Lord and I.
He knows that I am longing Some weary soul to win, And so He bids me go and speak The loving word for Him; He bids me tell His wondrous love, And why He came to die, And so we work together, My Lord and I.
