I Had a Friend Once.....

I had a friend once,
A dear, dear friend
A soul-mate
He said he would never leave
He’d be true to the end
And our friendship was great
I believed him
And I poured out my soul
Like I had never done before
And he understood
I didn’t need to pretend
To be anything more
Than I could
Be. I loved this friend
Who said he would never leave
And I will never grieve
This friend’s absence
Or know the pain of betrayal
I need no resistance
I have not loved in vain
Because He is faithful
This Friend said I will never leave you
And I am so glad
For I can believe You
This Friend that I had
And still do
God, You are a Friend once
No beginning or end
No, never
So, yes I had a Friend

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer.
