I praise the Lord for friendships
strong and so divine,
friendships my Father has chosen
sweeter than the choicest wine.
The dear ones that never leave you
or a trust betray,
but through the fiercest trials
by your side they stay.
Our Father gives so many things
to bless our life on earth,
but precious relationships with others
are of the greatest worth.
‘A sweet friendship refreshes the soul’
