What a Friend

By: Shannon

What a friend
We have in Jesus
Who died and rose again
And would never leave us.


He helped the lame to walk
The blind to see
He taught us life lessons
That are important to you and me.


He was taunted
And mocked
So very badly that
If we saw, we would be shocked.


He carried a cross
And walked up a hill
With many waiting,
Waiting for the kill.


His body was tacked
Up on a cross of wood
And rose from the grave
And to His persecutors He stood.


Friends may come
And they may go
But Jesus is a real friend
One you will ALWAYS know!
