We have a friend

A Poem by Dorothy Burton

I’ve been down in the valley
And up on the mountain top
And there is no place to find
Where our Jesus hasn’t got
He is our Lord and Savior
Our precious friend and guide
He never leaves me ever
But is always by my side
He is with us when He’s needed
And with when we are all alone
I love to have Him near me
On my heart, He has a throne
He speaks with words of love
And His wisdoms He will share
His kindness is greatly free
If you want a word of prayer
Stop and have a drink at the fountain
There’s no use of going dry
God’s word will give you strength
For on Him you can rely

In Isaiah 40:31 it says ‘they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength’

In Malachi 3:16 ‘then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another, the Lord hearkened and heard it and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord and that thought upon His name.’
