The song shares the same story as Somebody Touched Me.

I’VE GOT A FRIEND IN JESUS

Chorus:

I’ve got a friend in Jesus

Someone I could, I could call onto

Yes He’s a friend, more than anyone else

He’s always, here and there and everywhere.

There was a man

Searching for a friend.

He looked all around

Went all about,

With open eyes.

Then I wondered

I wondered and I wondered

How could anyone feel so lonely?

When He said He is always

He’s always here and there and everywhere.

Walked up to him

And asked what it was.

He looked at me

Tears in his eyes

He held my hands and said

O my dear child

I searched and couldn’t find a friend.

All I’ve met had been so cold to me.

And he cried, so worried

So worried. Guess what l said to him!

Chorus.

He held on tighter

And wept his sorrows away.

Wept for joy

Threw his load away

And cried aloud

Oh what a waste of

What a waste of time and a waste of life!

What I’ve been searching for has been there

As He said He would always be.

He’ll be there, anytime I call on Him.

Chorus.

Bridge:

In the Bible – He’s there

In the Church – He’s there

In our homes and anywhere we are

He’s here and there and everywhere.

When in sickness – He’s there

Or in good health – He’s there

When in poverty or comfort

He is here and there and everywhere.

When in need – He’s there

Want of love – He’s there/

However you are feeling

He is here and there and everywhere.

Oh what a waste of

What a waste of time of and a waste of life!

What I’ve been searching for has been there

As He said He would always be.

He’ll be there, anytime I call on Him.
