John 3: 16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Jesus is a friend to whom I am very near,
Who gives me extra strength when there are things I fear,
He stretches out his arms, enfolds me in his love,
His spirit hovers o’er me like the peaceful dove.

My sins he bore upon the cross,
His blood for me shed freely,
They went and laid him in a tomb,
The child who once was told no room.
There could be no greater Lord,
Who stays right by my side,
For ‘neath his everlasting arms,
I know there I can hide.
