My friends in this life have been very few
But Lord none could begin to compare with You

They all ran away when the going got tough
But You stuck with me though my edges were rough

When I knelt to pray, You heard my prayer
Through the dark times of my life You were always there

I could tell You my secrets, my hopes and my fears
My triumphs, my questions, I cried many tears

I must tell others what a friend You can be
How they can lay their sins at Your feet and be free

My Jesus the world needs a friend like You
The world would be peaceful, we would know what to do

You bore our sins upon that cross
Ridiculed and reviled, You suffered the cost

My life has new meaning because You’re my friend
You’ve promised me eternal life that has no end

Oh glorious day when we meet in the sky
And we’ll live forever in Your home on high

Thanks for reminding us of the all encompassing aspects of our "best friend, Jesus."

What a wonderful tribute to the very best friend any of us can ever possibly have. Touched my heart deeply.

Your poetry is a blessing. Certainly true friends are few, but we always have the truest of friends in Jesus. Wonderful work!
