A FRIEND

A friend does love at all times
No matter what you do
'cause the one who is your friend
His heart is turned to you.

A friend is one who understands
When you make mistakes
A friend is one who never ceases
Always loves, not hates.

A friend will give you all they have
So that you will be glad
A friend will always see you through
And bless you when you're sad.

I'm glad that Jesus said these words
'I have chosen you'
For I have come to understand
My friend is Jesus too.

For though at times I erred in sin
Which grieved my Saviour's heart;
In my tears he came to me
His love He did impart.

He said to me, 'I am your friend,
I died upon that ROD;
no longer will you be alone
for you're now a friend of God.'

Job 6:14; Proverbs 17:17
