God bless the friend who overlooks
The many faults in me,
Who loves me for myself
And for the things that I can be,
Whose tender heart
and thoughtful ways
Add so much pleasure to my days.

God bless the friend
who sees my needs
And reaches out a hand,
Who lifts me up, who prays for me
And helps me understand,
Who shares my problems,
come what may,
Who's always there from day to day.

God bless the friend whose cheerful ways
Can cause the sun to shine,
Who helps me see life's goodness
And the blessings that are mine--
That friendship is a special part
Of all that's precious
to my heart.
