I have a mighty Friend - Always Confident
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Always Confident.

1. I have a mighty Friend
    in Heaven above;
all who on him depend
    his care shall prove:
in every trial here,
all through the desert drear,
I can have nought to fear:
    his Name is Love.

2. Only a little while
    he is away:
soon will my Saviour’s smile
    turn night to day.
Oh, joy beyond compare
to meet him in the air,
his home of light to share
    soon and for aye!

3. Home! how that word so sweet
    thrills to the heart!
Home! where the children meet
    never to part.
Then like him I shall be,
whose blood was shed for me:
then, Jesus, I shall see
    thee as thou art.

Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 79-80.
