lyrics for Nell from May post

Here are the words to "My Friend" that you are looking for. I hope you see this:

There has never been a friend like Jesus
I have never found a friend so true
When I'm weary and my steps grow wayward,
Then He comes to me with strength anew.

Cho:
We walk hand in hand through this pilgrim land,
Here we linger for a day,
But soon we'll leave this land of night
For a better life
There my friend and I will stay.

Let me recommend this friend so precious
He will understand your deepest need.
For He's walked this lonely path before us,
And He's able every step to lead.

I think in the chorus it should be:
"But soon we'll leave this land of night
For that land so bright"

Thanks for posting; I was looking for the words

My dad just pulled out a hymnal (The New Church Hymnal by Lexicon) that has this in it. It's by Ralph Carmichael.
