My Friend is always near me In the thick and in the thin And His words so often cheer me When I take it on the chin He brings hope and joy and courage As I listen to His voice And my heart He does encourage As He helps me make the choice The choice makes all the difference It involves my attitude There's a peace and sweet deliverance As I show my gratitude I find Him so delightful He's approachable each day And His wisdom's so insightful As we walk the narrow way He reminds me of the reason Why He placed me on this earth That in every single season I would share what He is worth For my Friend left all to save me When He died upon the cross And a wondrous gift He gave me When He suffered pain and loss In this world's most darkest hour He defeated death and sin And because He rose in power I'm not where I should have been Today He walks beside me And He fills my heart with Love And His Spirit dwells inside me Bringing insights from above I am thankful for the Joy He shares I marvel at His Grace He reaches out and always cares He's building me a place And someday when my eyes grow dim From this old world I'll flee And I will go and live with Him For all eternity ©Jim Lake Used With Permission All Rights Reserved By Author Website Mail
