There's nothing in the world more precious
Than the friends God sent my way.
My heart overflows with happiness
As we share our love each day.
There are times I feel sad and lonely.
To the Lord I begin to pray
For the loneliness that comes my way.
His answered prayers help me to live
A life of friendship which they give.
We all have faults, I know I do
But they don't seem to mind.
They know that I am human
And the good they try to find.
Thank you Lord for my dear friends
In case you might not know
How very much your friendship means,
The older that I grow.
There's happiness in little things
There's joy in passing pleasure
But friendships are from year to year
The best of all life's treasure.
