My Friend

He dries my eyes when sorrow brings a tear
He calms my heart when I am full of fear
He lends an ear for each and every prayer
His name is Jesus what a friend

He speaks to me when I feel all alone
He shows the way when I begin to roam
He hears my cry when I am far from home
His name is Jesus what a friend

He’s such a friend to me
He meets my every need
He’s by my side
He never hides
My friend He’ll always be

He brings a smile to my face each day
He holds His hand out showing me the way
He always knows the right words he should say
His name is Jesus what a friend

In my darkest times He never leaves me
When my hope is gone He will assure me
Of I go astray He’s sure to find me
He’s just that kind of friend
He’s just that kind of friend

He’s such a friend to me
He meets my every need
He’s by my side
He never hides
My friend He’ll always be

    1. Thanks Lynn. To be honest. the first two verses have been sitting in my “Not Posted” file for over 2 years. I was finally lead to finish this one today. Sometimes the good stuff has to stew for a while!
