A true friend will stand by you,
Anytime and anywhere;
The truest friend you'll find is Jesus;
He always will be there.
He's a friend that you can count on,
He's a friend that you can trust;
Jesus is the only friend
Who's always faithful and just.
He cares about your whole life,
Your heart, your soul, your mind;
Jesus is the greatest friend
You're ever going to find.
A friend who will stand by you
Is a real friend, indeed;
Jesus is the one true friend
You're always going to need.
He is a friend who'll help you,
Who will comfort, support, and guide;
Jesus will always walk with you
And remain close by your side.
He never will forsake you,
He'll be there right to the end;
Your Savior, Lord, Redeemer,
Your dearest, most loving friend.
