What Is A Friend - Poem by Phyllis May Coates

A friend is a husband,
a mother, a wife.
A father, a sister, a brother.
A friend is the one you turn to
when there's strife
The one who is there when there's trouble.

A friend is the one, who stays
faithful and true.
Who guides you along,
when you stray.
Jesus is your friend
who guides you each day.
So remember the Lord,
when temptation is near.
Open your heart and mind
Put temptation behind you
the rest of the day
Just go down on your knees
and pray
