Norman Bearcroft

This cheerful song of testimony is given a bright, toe-tapping treatment that will have listeners singing along with the band.

Iíve found a friend in Jesus, he's everything to me,
Heís the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
The lily of the valley, in him alone I see
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow heís my comfort, in trouble heís my stay,
He tells me every care on him to roll.

Heís the lily of the valley, the bright and morning star,
Heís the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

He all my griefs has taken, and all my sorrows borne,
In temptation heís my strong and mighty tower;
Iíve all for him forsaken, Iíve all my idols torn
From my heart, and now he keeps me by his power.
Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.

Heíll never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here,
While I live by faith and do his blessŤd will;
A wall of fire about me, Iíve nothing now to fear,
With his manna he my hungry soul shall fill.
Then sweeping up to Glory, Iíll see his blessŤd face
Where rivers of delight shall ever flow.
