Now I have found a friend - Jesus is mine
(Henry Hope/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Jesus is mine.

1. Now I have found a friend,
    Jesus is mine;
his love shall never end,
    Jesus is mine.
Though earthly joys decrease,
 though earthly friendships cease,
  now I have lasting peace,
    Jesus is mine.

2. Though I grow poor and old,
    Jesus is mine;
though I grow faint and cold,
    Jesus is mine;
he shall my wants supply,
 his precious blood is nigh,
  nought can my hope destroy,
    Jesus is mine.

3. When death is sent to me,
    Jesus is mine;
welcome eternity,
    Jesus is mine.
He my redemption is,
 wisdom and righteousness,
  life, light, and holiness,
    Jesus is mine.

4. When earth shall pass away,
    Jesus is mine.
In the great judgment-day,
    Jesus is mine.
Oh! what a glorious thing,
 then to behold my King, –
  on tuneful harp to sing,
    Jesus is mine.

5. Father, thy name I bless,
    Jesus is mine;
thine was the sovereign grace,
    praise shall be thine.
Spirit of holiness,
 sealing the Father's grace,
  thou mad'st my soul embrace
    Jesus as mine.

Henry Hope, in: Philip Schaff: Christ in Song, 1870, 405-406;
and in: Charles Rogers, Charles, Lyra Britannica, 1867, 317-318.
