People – There’s not a Friend…

A friend of the family gave my husband this small picture of Jesus. It is smaller than a baseball card, and easily sets upon my kitchen windowsill where I am able to see it daily. I have always loved the image of Jesus holding a lamb. It is representative of his care, compassion and love for all of us. Today the old hymn, “There’s Not A Friend Like The Lowly Jesus,” sprang into my head. It was written in 1890, but has endured for over a century, as so many gospel hymns have done. I love the message in the song, a good song to sing to remind me of the Lord, my greatest friend and Savior, and I think I need to say to that, “Amen.”

There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus No, not one! No, not one! None else could heal all our souls diseases No, not one! No, not one!
Chorus: Jesus knows all about our struggles He will guide till the day is done There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus No, not one! No, not one!
No friend like Him is so high and holy No, not one! No, not one! And yet no friend is so meek and lowly No, not one! No, not one!
Repeat Chorus
There’s not an hour that He is not near us No, not one! No, not one! No night so dark but His love can cheer us No, not one! No, not one!
Repeat Chorus
