A Friend

There’s Someone who wants to be close to you
A Friend who can fill every void
He’s never too busy to listen or care
He’ll never be angry or even annoyed!

You can call on Him whenever your life has a need
You can be sure that He’ll always be there
He’ll never ignore you or reject what you say
His friendship is unique and so rare.

There aren’t many friends who would give up their life
It’s something that just isn’t done!
However, for Him He never thought twice
Of dying so we may be won!

A true friend is one who will give of himself
Despite how he’s treated in turn
A friend is someone who loves without cause
And helps you with each passing turn

The Saviour fulfills all the words said above
He left a most glorious Throne
To die on a tree so that all could join Him
In a place He’s prepared for our Home!

A Saviour you say, but Who could this be?
It’s God Himself, sent to earth as a man
Jesus Christ stepped away from His Glorious Place
To descend and be offered to God as a Lamb

Your sins He has taken upon His own Self
So that you can gain entrance to Heaven
Repent and believe is all you need do
Christ has paid the penalty for sin!

Why would He do this you ask in your heart?
Why would anyone do this for me?
He is God incarnate who unselfishly gave
Of Himself so that you may be free!

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be changed
A new life that will bring glory to Him
Give Him praises and thanks for all He has done
He is deserving and worthy for cleansing our sin!

A new life with a sweet aroma of works
You are now a light which never should dim
Be faithful and pure in your actions and deeds
So that souls may be won just for Him!
