A friend is like a tower strong,
A friend is like a joyous song
That helps us on our way.
When golden ties of friendship bind
The heart to heart, the mind to mind,
How fortunate are we!
For friendship is a noble thing;
It soars past death on angel's wing
God blesses friendship's holy bond
Both here and in the great beyond:
A benefit unpriced.
Then may we know that wondrous joy,
That precious ore without alloy;
A friendship based on Christ.
