Friends

By Michael W. Smith

 

Packing up the dreams God planted

In the fertile soil of you

Canít believe the hopes Heís granted

Means a chapter in your life is through

 

But weíll keep you close as always

It wonít even seem youíve gone

Cause our hearts in big and small ways

Will keep the love that keeps us strong

 

(Chorus)

And friends are friends forever

If the Lordís the Lord of them

And a friend will not say ďneverĒ

Cause the welcome will not end

Though itís hard to let you go

In the Fatherís hands we know

That a lifetimeís not too long to live as friends

 

With the faith and love Godís given

Springing from the hope we know

We will pray the joy youíll live in

Is the strength that now you show

 

But weíll keep you close as always

It wonít even seem youíve gone

Cause our hearts in big and small ways

Will keep the love that keeps us strong

 

(Chorus)

And friends are friends forever

If the Lordís the Lord of them

And a friend will not say ďneverĒ

Cause the welcome will not end

Though itís hard to let you go

In the Fatherís hands we know

That a lifetimeís not too long to live as friends
