do not know just what may come tomorrow,
do not know what lies around the bend.
only know if I must face pain and sorrow.
won't have to meet it alone, I have a friend.
A friend, that when you have need of Him,
walking next to you.
who will stand by you until the very end.
this cold world, it's great to know,
have a friend.
do not know if my life will be extended,
do not know if death's dark vale I will see.
only know when my life on earth has ended.
true friend will see it through with me.
do not know if in the grave I will lay yearning,
do not know if the rapture I will see.
only know that someday He'll be returning.
on that day, my friend will call for me.
