Today... 'Friend' - Poem by Roy Allen
This is my dear Friend and my Lover
who satisfies me like no other
For there is no other One for me
so altogether lovely is He
My Advocate and Intercessor.
His love's so boundless without measure.
With words of sweetness and tender mercy
He pleads before the throne of God for me.
Jesus my Lord and Saviour from high
interprets to God the tears I cry.
I sing the praise of this Friend of mine
for He is the Man of God divine.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
His mouth is sweetness itself; he is altogether lovely. This is my lover, this my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.
Job 16: 19-21
Even now my witness is in heaven;
my advocate is on high.
My intercessor is my friend
as my eyes pour out tears to God;
on behalf of a man he pleads with God
as a man pleads for his friend.

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
