1. Wouldst thou find a friend to love thee
More than human hearts can love,
One who knows thy every trial?
Such a friend thou hast above.

Refrain
Go, in trusting faith believing,
Cast thy burden on the Lord,
He has promised to receive thee—
Take thy Savior at His word.

2. Wouldst thou find the blessèd fountain,
Flowing at the cross so free?
Go to Jesus; He will guide thee;
Cleansed by Him thy soul shall be. [Refrain]

3. Wouldst thou find a friend to teach thee
How thy soul by faith may live,
How to reach those heights of rapture
Earthly joy can never give? [Refrain]

4. Wouldst thou find a friend to shield thee
When with clouds thy sky is dim?
Go to Jesus; ask His mercy;
Lo, He calls thee, go to Him. [Refrain]
