God knew that everyone needs
Companionship and cheer,
He knew that people need someone
whose thoughts are always near.
He knew they need someone kind
To lend a helping hand,
Someone to gladly take the time
To care and understand.
God knew that we all need someone
To share each happy day,
To be a source of courage
When troubles come our way.
Someone to be true to us
Whether near or far apart,
Someone whose love we'll always hold
And treasure it in our hearts.
That's why God gave us friends.
