You Would Be Their Friend

As we walk through this life,
There sometimes seems to be such a battle!
Broken homes and hurting hearts,
Lying, deceit and pain.
It's so easy to walk right by,
Or simply turn and look away.
But what would you do?
Where would you be?

You would be their friend,
You'd be right there at their side.
You would love them where they are,
Never seeing them with a judging eye.
We need to be a light to them,
Loving them from deep within our hearts.
Help us to be your hands, to be your eyes,
Help us to have your heart and be all that you've commanded us to be.

There are times when we feel,
So inadequate to help.
We are feeling opposition,
To the call you've given us.
When we're sick and feeling beaten,
Weary from this walk of life.
But you are here with us,
Wanting us to live and shine your light.

Because you would be their friend,
You'd be right there at their side.
You would love them where they are,
Never seeing them with a judging eye.
We need to be a light to them,
Loving them from deep within our hearts.
Help us to be your hands, to be your eyes,
Help us to be your heart and be all that you've commanded us to be.

Show us how to love from deep within,
To be what they need us to be.
Help us to have the purest motivations,
To serve and love for Your Glory!
To be selfless and true,
All the things we know you'd do!

Because you would be their friend,
You'd be right there at their side.
You would love them where they are,
Never seeing them with a judging eye.
We need to be a light to them,
Loving them from deep within our hearts.
Help us to be your hands, to be your eyes,
Help us to be your heart and be all that you've commanded us to be!
