It's Great To Know I Have A Friend

It's Great To Know I Have A Friend

I do not know just what may come tomorrow,

I do not know what lies around the bend.

I only know if I must face pain and sorrow.

I won't have to meet it alone, I have a friend.

 Chorus:

 I have a friend, who will always stay true blue,

A friend, that when you have need of Him,

He's walking next to you. 

Someone, who will stand by you until the very end.

In this cold world, it's great to know,

I have a friend.

I do not know if my life will be extended,

I do not know if death's dark vale I will see.

I only know when my life on earth has ended.

My true friend will see it through with me.

 

I do not know if in the grave I will lay yearning,

I do not know if the rapture I will see.

I only know that someday He'll be returning.

And on that day, my friend will call for me.
