"Jesus Was There" lyrics - THE OAK RIDGE BOYS

"Jesus Was There"

On a night long ago I lay far from sleep
I was lost and all alone and Lord, sure in need
Of a friend that I could trust and take my troubles to
Oh the friend came and went and troubles only grew

So I looked back upon my life and all my sinful ways
And in the dark of that night I could see clear as day
Oh that I was not alone and lost without a prayer
For I opened my eyes and Jesus was there

Jesus was there in the still of that night
Oh my Jesus was there an old friend that I had left out of my life
So when I wakened I just looked back on that night oh so drear
And I thank God that Jesus was there
