721. Jesus Is Good to Me

1 Jesus has been so good to me,
No other friend so kind could be;
Safely keeps me every day
Free from sin and in the way;
Ne’er can I such love repay,
He’s so good to me.

Refrain:
Jesus is good to me,
Jesus is good to me;
Safely keeps me from the wrong,
In the conflict makes me strong,
Blesses all my journey long,
He’s so good to me.

2 Jesus has been so good to me,
From this world He set me free;
Grace and glory did impart,
Satisfied my longing heart:
From His love I’ll never part,
He’s so good to me. [Refrain]

3 Jesus has been so good to me,
And His face I soon shall see;
Though I once afar did rove,
Lost, unworthy of His love,
He prepared a home above,
He’s so good to me. [Refrain]

4 Jesus has been so good to me,
None so fair, so dear as He:
Hallelujah! He is mine,
Keeping me by grace divine,
And His glories in me shine,
He’s so good to me. [Refrain]
