(Proverbs 18:24 etc. )
Created not to be alone, _
my Maker did intend
I love him with my heart and mind,
be to my neighbours good and kind:
a true and trusted friend.
We should endeavour to keep peace,
encourage and defend,
support and not retaliate;
good friendships try to cultivate,
to be a helpful friend.
And special, deeper friendships will
on openness depend;
consistently give love and care,
and thoughtfully advise and share:
to be a precious friend.
And Christ can make our love improve;
ill-treated hearts he’ll mend.
He never hurts by fickle mood,
he’s always working for our good:
the only perfect Friend.
