A Friend That Makes Me Rise Each Day

There is a friend that makes me rise each day

A friend who helps me face the day

A friend who laughs and rejoices in my strengths

A friend who cheers me through my darkest days

A friend who guides the inner most intimate parts of me.


There is a friend who makes me rise each day

A friend who is spotless, blameless, and faultless

A friend who gives me love, peace, and hope

A friend who offers me everlasting joy


There is a friend who makes me rise each day

A friend who is just not for today but a friend for every day

A friend that takes charge of my enemies

A friend who totally and beautifully protects me.


You ask me, who can this friend be?

This friend is for you and me

A friend for all eternity.

He is my friend, my Savior, my true best of friends

Jesus, is his name, the name above all names.

Jesus, my friend, that makes me rise each day, again and again.
