This Friend You’ve Given Me

THIS FRIEND YOU’VE GIVEN ME

The many gifts and blessings Lord
That you have given me
Fill me with thanks and gratitude
And love that praises thee

But there’s one thing above the rest
I treasure specially
I hardly know how to express
It means so much to me

When sorrow strikes I call her
She hears my “Woe is me”
And let’s me talk forever
Then says, “Let’s pray, shall we?”

You knew all she would have to be
To get along with me
So then you gave her Patience,
Love and Humility

But what I cherish most of all
Is the ability
To share the love we have for You
With this friend
You’ve given me
