The Arms of a Friend

It seems there are times when faith isn't enough
to handle the burdens we carry,
when solace is found in the arms of a friend
or the loving companion we married.
Though the love of God is always there,
sometimes it seems He just shrugs
and leaves it up to the arms of a friend
to pull us in close for a hug.
When turmoil seems to surround you
and nothing is turning out right,
leave it up to the arms of a friend
to throw open your windows to light!
So never despair in loneliness
when friends are close at hand.
They'll boost you up and love you
and always understand.
They'll pull you through the hard times
and you'll know how much they are worth,
for God will use your friends
as His angels here on earth!
