    A friend loves at all times. Proverbs 17:17

    A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly:
    and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
    Proverbs 18:24

    Greater love has no one than this,
    than to lay down one's life for his friends.
    John 15:13

    ~ Friends ~

    If I thought I was your friend
    And you walked alone in grief,
    I’d feel I failed my duty.
    I’d feel just like a thief
    To hoard away the comfort that
    The Lord gave me to lend ...

    And not share in your suffering.
    No, that wouldn’t be a friend.
    So, if you’re sad or hurt or sick,
    Please let me share that day.
    And, please don’t think you’d bother me
    If you asked me to pray.

    For, friends can share the sunshine.
    But, they share the trials, too.
    I want to be the one you’d call,
    To share your trial with you.
