Why God gave us friends

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
Some whose love we’ll always
Hold and treasure in our hands.
That’s why God fave us Friends
