Just Two Friends - Poem by Robert Kirkland Kernighan

I ve only got two friends on earth :

I owe them both a debt ;
No matter what my trouble was

They 've never failed me yet ;
They lead me to the narrow way

They draw me from the broad ;
They seek for me by night, by day

My mother and my God.

They never place a stumbling block

Across my toilsome track,
Nor multiply my many faults

When I have turned my back.
And when I try to find the path

The blessed Savior trod,
They point His footsteps out to me

My mother and my God.

These are the two that I can trust

Wherever I may be ;
Ah, well I know they 'll never fail

Or treacherous prove to me !
And yet they do not spare I oft

Have felt their chastening rod ;
Yet, still I put my faith in them

My mother and my God.
