Seldom is friendship such as thine
How very much I wish to be
As helpful as you've been to me.











When I recall from time to time
How you inspired this heart of mine,
I find myself inclined to pray,
God bless my friend this very day.



So often at the throne of grace,
There comes a picture of your face.
And, then, instinctively, I pray
That God may guide you all the way.



Some day, I hope with you to stand
Before the throne, at God's right hand
And say to you at journey's end:
Praise God, you've been to me a friend!
