When You Need A Friend
"When you are sad and burdened down, you
need a helping hand.
You need a friend who listens well -
someone who'll understand.
Someone who's feet have trod the road
of sorrow once before
Is able then to tell you that your
troubles he once bore.
And when temptations come your way you
feel that you are weak.
You need someone to strengthen you;
for good advice you seek.
You want someone who, like you, has
been tempted in the past;
And yet who somehow had the strength
to overcome at last.
You have a friend in Jesus Christ; he's
walked in your own shoes.
He understands temptations; the right
way He helps you choose.
For He's been lonely, tempted too, and
yet without a sin.
He'll help you to be faithful and the
crown of life to win.
