Friends are an important part of our lives. They become our extended family, our confidante, making our lives fuller.

Trusting in you, my friend
In so short a time was easy
Loving you more each day
Is the joy that fills my heart

My fears and problems I’ve brought to you
And criticise and complain you did not
Instead, lovingly you’ve listened and helped
To make me believe in myself

Special you’ve made me feel
A hug you gave me when I needed one
You gently remind me of another
Whom I’ve sometimes forgotten about

But your assurance that he’s always there
Makes it easier for me to trust
In the most loving friendship
Between Jesus, you and me
