Friends are God's loving arms extended
When we need a hug... they are there
They are strong to lift us from a fall
Friends keep us smiling
Through the good times
And even through the bad
Friends cry with us, when we need
They make us laugh...
when laughter is far from being felt
Friends are like air...
Something we couldn't live without
For through our friends God reaches out
To hold us, bring comfort through the pain
They help keep us on track
When we, ourselves have lost our way
I hope I am that friend to you
As you surely have been for me
I thank God for my precious friends
For they are the pearls in life...
that God sends.
