The Friend Who Just Stands By

The Friend Who Just Stands By

When trouble comes your soul to try,

You love the friend who just “stands by”

Perhaps there’s nothing he can do;

The problem is strictly up to you.

For they are problems all your own

And pains the soul must tread alone.

There are times when love cannot smooth the road, nor friendship lift the heavy load

Just to know you have a friend who will stand by:

Or to have a warm hand, it helps, someway to pull you through; although there’s nothing he can do.

And so fervent heart you cry

God bless the Friend who Just Stands By

with love,

Miss Gloria Cross
