"Friends not only fill our lives with joy by surrounding us with their warm fellowship, but also help our feet from slipping during horrendous storms in life. Certain Bible verses on friendship remind us of how important and valuable good friends are! Moreover, with God as the center of our friendship, we know that no misunderstanding, envy or pride can break our friendship. When we give our God the central position in our lives and our relationships, He will honor and guard them for us!"

Our grandson is almost 5 now and he is a very friendly lad. We were listening to this song the other day, Friend Song. It's great for character building in regards to being a good friend. No, I don't have the chords to this one but it sure is cute!


1. Friend Song

I’m your friend, you’re my friend
We’ll stick together until the end
We’re caring, we’re sharing
Respecting, connecting
I believe in you, you believe in me
Showing loyalty and honesty
We share our history, nothing’s a mystery
We both have the key to reach our dreams
I’m your friend, you’re my friend
This friendship lasts forever
There’s so much more to me than how I look, you see
Get, get to know me, look in my heart and see
And when you see me for the real me
I know that we could be friends forever
And I know, yes I know
I’m not alone, I’m not alone
We got each other, we got each other
I know that we could be friends forever
I’m your friend, you’re my friend
This friendship lasts forever

We are magic, he said
But don't let it all go to your head
'Cause I bet if you had it all figured out
Then you'd never get out of bed
Well, no doubt
Of all the thing's that I've read what he wrote me
Is now sounding like the man I was hoping to be
I keep on keeping it real
'Cause it keeps getting easier, you'll see

He's the reason that I'm laughing
Even if there's no one else
He said you've got to love yourself

He said you shouldn't mumble when you speak
But keep your tongue up in your cheek
And if you stumble on to something better
Remember that it's humble that you seek
You got all the skill you need
Individuality
You got something
Call it gumption, call it anything you want

Because when you play the fool now
You're only fooling everyone else
You're learning to love yourself

There's no price to pay
When you give it what you take
That's why it's easy to thank you

Let's say take a break from our day
And get back to the old garage
Because life's too short anyway
But at least it's better than average
As long as you got me and I got you
You know we got a lot to go around
I'll be your friend, your other brother
Another love to come and comfort you

And I'll keep reminding
If it's the only thing I ever do
I will always love you

It's true, our love is true
It's you I love, it's you I love, it's you, it's you I love
It's true, our love is true, our love is true, it's you I love
It's you I love, it's you I love, it's you, it's you I love

Climb up over the top
Survey the state of the soul
You've got to find out for yourself
Whether or not you're truly trying
Why not give it a shot?
Shake it, take control
Inevitably wind up finding for yourself
All the strengths that you have inside still rising
(All the strengths that you have inside of you)

3. James Taylor: You've Got A Friend

This is one of my favorite all-time songs from a great musician. It is such a laid-back, easy going groove, with lyrics that melt your heart. I blogged about it awhile back and posted the chord chart, here. Here's yours truly playing another song by James Taylor, Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight on a small Yamaha keyboard I use for my students.

 Do you have a favorite song about friendship?
We've only scratched the surface on the subject.
There's so many hymns, like "What a Friend We Have in Jesus."

Blessings,
