Way To Be a Friend

When the road is much too toilsome
And I feel I can't go on
You've always been there beside me
To help me walk along

On the days when I felt like dying
Beautiful thoughts where sent my way
Every one of those beautiful thoughts
Assisted me in all of my day to day

For this I can't repay you
Righteousness I don't deserve
In all of your infinite love for me
Evermore will it be
Now I have found my peace
Days of my life have been complete
