Our Friend Who's Gone Away
We really didn't have him long - Our friend whose gone away.
And if things could be different I confess I'd have him stay
With us and bless us with his friendship and his smile,
He grew so very dear to us in such a little while.
Now we all are lonesome - Each heart has an empty space-
That wants to feel his hand again and see his smiling face -
And hear him speak so gently, and just be with us each day.
We miss him and we're grieving for - Our Friend whose gone away.
But I am very thankful -There is peace within my soul -
For I know he's with Jesus - I know He has made him whole.
And I know too I'll see him when He calls me from this place,
And when I go to live with Him - I know I'll see his face.
