I have been charged to be your friend;
an easy labor to that glorious end.
I'm over here with a heart for you,
it is shown through these words so true.
May my ways be your colored rainbow;
please, please win; not just place or show.
I talked to God. It seems He remembers you,
"Let's go to them, please, just us two."
I can be a friend for your aching heart;
I'll come beside, even when it falls apart.
I come in pain known from my own trials,
I am here with you, unseen for a while.
I'm not afraid; I can cry with you;
in a way it's a joy, just to share the blue.
I won't say the word; I'll say it being there;
a comfort's hug, saying that I care.
Now I know why I went through that,
when life to me was such a brat.
This life I live, I live with you
not alone on this earth, give the Glory due.
I'm qualified for your aching heart;
I'm here beside, just let it fall apart.
I share the pain; your enduring trial;
it is enough just to be here a while.
I love to be your friend, to give you some time;
all that I give is from His cup of wine.
I cannot give, but what comes from my Lord;
He thinks just like me: you are most adored.

"A man who has friends must himself be friendly,
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." ~ Proverbs 18:24
"For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
For he has no one to help him up." ~ Ecclesiastes 4:10
