"FRIENDS"

Verse 1
I’ve got so many friends,
I could never be alone.
And as I look at that cloud in the sky,
And I think of going Home.

Chorus 1
But I’m just traveling through this broken world,
Pickin’ up strangers on my way,
And I’m makin’ of them my friends for eternity, -
Closer and closer every day.

Verse 2
When I close my eyes, I see one million smiles,
Familiar faces that I have known, [so many faces I have known.]
And as I walk [as I walk] this rugged, winding road of life,
I know I’ll be with them when I get Home.

Repeat Chorus 1

Bridge
Look down, look down, look down, look down upon me, Jesus.
[Aah, look down!]
All you heavenly angels, won’t you look down too?
Show me a sea of warm and shining faces,
’Cause I wanna make them all your friends too.
Yeah, they’re all gonna be your friends too.

Verse 3
Heaven is a place, an eternal family where noone’s alone,
Where little children come running up to you,
Saying, “Come on in, and welcome Home.” Yeah!

Chorus 2
We’re just passin’ through this broken world,
Pickin’ up strangers on our way, yeah, yeah, yeah!
And we’re makin’ of them our friends for eternity, yeah,
We’re closer and closer every day,
Closer and closer every day.
