"He's A Friend"



This is a Southern Gospel type song. I wrote it while working as a receptionist in a Retirement Village, where there were many lonely people.

Click here for the music.

He's A Friend

Shine his light in the darkness.
Let His love flow through you.
Jesus cares for the lonely and blue.
Share a smile filled with gladness.
Spread a word of good news.
There is one who is waiting for you.
He's a friend, true and faithful,
A friend by you side,
Speaking words that will lift spirits high.
God gives rest to the weary,
He gives strength to the weak,
Feeds the soul that is thirsty and dry.

Be a friend to the lonely,
Be a friend to the blue,
Lift them up to the Father in love.
Share a bouquet of flowers.
Spread a word of His truth.
Let the hope of the Lord
Shine through you
He's a friend, true and faithful,
A friend by your side,
Speaking words that will lift spirits high.
God gives rest to the weary,
He gives strength to the weak,
Feeds the soul that is thirsty and dryl

Jesus cares for His children.
Jesus cares for the lost.
Spread good news of the gospel to all.
He's a friend even closer
Than a brother to you,
For He loves you with His perfect love.
He's a friend, true and faithful
A friend by your side,
Speaking words that will lift spirits high.
God gives rest to the weary,
He gives strength to the weak,
Feeds the soul that is thirsty and dry.

Cathy,
Thank you for dropping by...I pray that God ministers to you where you need His touch.
"This is the day that the Lord ha made, let us rejoice and be glad in it." This is the verse that He brought to my mind this morning as we head off to church. Blessings,

Blessings Cathy...That's was fun!
Once I discoered there were no words and I needed to sing along and restart for each verse...I loved it! I had read the words yesterday and they really ministered to me. I'm sorry that I did not get to comment until today.

This truly was a gift from God and very inspiring! I'm glad that you brought home the AWARD I was giving yesterday because this truly
is INSPIRATIONAL! Enjoy!
