Friends - Poem by Mary Ryan

Friends are God’s gifts to the young and the old
More precious than wealth, their value untold
They’re with us through laughter or tears
Sometimes for a short time or perhaps many years
Sometimes together or so far apart
But wherever they are, they’re safe in each heart
They give more than gifts that can be bought or sold
They give of themselves—worth so much more than gold
Christian friends have something so rare
Both in this life and next, their love we can share
God’s greatest gift to each and to all
Is Jesus His Son and on Him you can call
Though others forsake you, He’ll always bet here
To help you along, your burdens to bear
