Reflection:

I was cooking breakfast one morning, and this beautiful, old hymn came on the radio. A hymn I grew up hearing, its melody—and especially the lyrics—took me back to Billy Graham's revival meetings, televised decades ago. Oh, the power, the tenderness...the love in this song!

So, I give you the words to what could certainly be part of my own testimony of faith.

Please share, if you wish. And  let us all embrace the gratitude of grace this month of Thanksgiving, dear friends!

"I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus,
Since I found in Him a friend so strong and true;
I would tell you how He changed my life completely,
He did something that no other friend could do.

"No one ever cared for me like Jesus,
There's no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me,
O how much He cared for me.

"All my life was full of sin when Jesus found me,
All my heart was full of misery and woe;
Jesus placed His strong and loving arms about me,
And He led me in the way I ought to go.

"No one ever cared for me like Jesus,
There's no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me,
O how much He cared for me.

"Ev'ry day He comes to me with new assurance,
More and more I understand His words of love;
But I'll never know just why He came to save me,
Till some day I see His blessed face above.

"No one ever cared for me like Jesus,
There's no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me,
O how much He cared for me."
