I have a friend, a friend as true
As the sun is kind,
As the sky is blue,
I have a friend whose faith in me
Is sure as the stars,
Is deep as the sea.
I have a friend who trusts me still
Though the turn of chance
Brings good or ill,
Brings loss or gain,
Brings shower or rain
I have a friend whose love is mine.
A friend who sees the good in me,
And knows the self that I long to be
And helps me on
By a brave sweet smile
To win my way
To the things worthwhile.
Oh, never a friend my heart shall know
Can take her place - can bless me so,
For nearer, dearer than any other
I have a friend - her name is
