 Friends by Michael W. Smith and Deborah D. Smith

verse 1:Packing up the dreams God planted

In the fertile soil of you;

Can’t believe the hopes He’s granted

Means a chapter in your life is through.

But we’ll keep you close as always;

It won’t even seem you’ve gone,

‘Cause our hearts in big and small ways,

Will keep the love that keeps us strong.

verse 2:With the faith and love God’s given

Springing from the hope we know.

We will pray the joy you’ll live in

Is the strength that now you show.

But we’ll keep you close as always;

It won’t even seem you’ve gone,

‘Cause our hearts in big and small ways,

Will keep the love that keeps us strong.

 

Chorus:And friends are friends forever if the Lord’s the Lord of them,

And a friend will not say, “never,”

‘Cause the welcome will not end.

Though it’s hard to let you go,

In the father’s hands we know

That a lifetime’s not too long to live as friends.
