The Gift of Friendship

by Northern Life

Mary Francis Grayson, West Shetland

Thank you Lord
For lovely, loyal friends
They shine like stars at night
Always there when in need

Saying, all will be all right
A true friend always, believe in you
Lifting you up in time of doubt
With friends we have nothing to hide

Winning a victory, always to cheer
When our world crashes
Brush away our tears
God can’t be everywhere

That is why God gave friends
I’m so grateful to all mine
Will be with me
So sure, till life’s
Journey comes to the end

(Written in 1934 by Mary, an ex-RAF nurse, a widow, no children, a very brave lady)
