I have found a friend in Jesus

Mo ti ni Jesu lore
O j’ohun gbogbo fun mi
Oun nikan larewa ti okan mi fe
Oun nitanna ipado
Oun ni Enikan naa
To le we mi nu kuro nin’ese mi

Olutunu mi lo je ni gbogbo wahala
Oun ni ki n kaniyan mi l’Oun lori
Oun n’Itanna Ipado
Irawo Owuro
Oun nikan l’Arewa ti okan mi fe

O gbe gbogbo banuje

O j’Odi agbara mi n’gba danwo
Tori Re mo k’ohun gbogbo
Ti mo ti fe sile
O si f’agbara Re gbe okan mi ro
Bi aye tile ko mi

Jesu yoo mu mi d’opin irin mi
Oun n’Itanna ipado
Irawo Owuro
Oun nikan l’Arewa ti okan mi fe

Oun ki yo fi mi sile
Be ki yo ko mi nihin
Niwon ti m’ba figbagbo pofin Re mo
O jodi ina yi mi ka

Y’o fi manna Re bokan mi t’ebi npa
Gba m’ba dade n’ikehin
N o roju ‘bukun Re
Ti adun Re y’o ma san titi lai
Oun n’Itanna ipado
Irawo Owuro
Oun nikan l’Arewa ti okan mi fe

I have found a friend in Jesus, He’s everything to me,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow He’s my comfort, in trouble He’s my stay;
He tells me every care on Him to roll.
Refrain:
He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

VERSE 2

He all my grief has taken, and all my sorrows borne;
In temptation He’s my strong and mighty tow’r;
I’ve all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
From my heart and now He keeps me by His pow’r.
Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.

VERSE 3

He’ll never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here,
While I live by faith and do His blessed will;
A wall of fire about me, I’ve nothing now to fear,
From His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.
Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessed face,
Where rivers of delight shall ever roll.
